Neiman Marcus hosted a June 12 cocktail reception in its Precious Jewel Salon to announce the Women’s Board of the Adler Planetarium’s Celestial Ball. The annual benefit ball, themed ‘Starry Night’, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Planetarium.
The Michael John Collection was featured. Tina Koegel, head of publicity for Neimans, and Wendy Krimins, vice president-general manager of Neiman Marcus, welcomed the over 100 guests. Neimans donated five percent of the evening’s jewelry sales as well as the door prize, a stunning necklace from Michael John, which was won by board member Laura Myntti of River Forest.
One of the many unique items in this year ball auction has been donated by Captain James Lovell of Apollo 13 fame and it is the flag from this flight.
