After a year of overcoming the COVID ups and down, the 2021 Crystal Charity Ball committee members celebrated 2021 CCB Chair Leslie Diers‘ leadership on the eve of the fundraiser gala. Instead of getting all fluffed up at a fancy restaurant, the crew in slacks and flats gathered in Leslie’s suite at the Anatole.
Highlight of the night was the display of a legendary piece of artwork revised to memorialize the “magical mystery tour” of the past year combining Leslie’s love of music and the ball’s theme of “Peace Love London.”
Check out the artwork and you’ll see that the Fab Four plus one in the center seem to resemble CCB committee members Special Gifts Chair Anne “John Lennon” McPherson, Silent Auction Chair Susan “Ringo Starr” Glassmoyer, Underwriting Chair Cheryl “Paul McCartney” Joyner, Children’s Book Chair Kim “George Harrison” Quinn and Foundation Chair Mary Martha “Marlene Dietrich” Pickens with Leslie in gold to the far right in a Diana Dors silhouette.
