Magic Show Raises Funds for Luncheon and Workshops for People with Disabilities

            “Magic, Mirth & Meaning”continues monthly at St. Mary’s Church at 337 Charlotte Street as a fundraiser for The Vanishing Wheelchair, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Bring the whole family to see story tellers, singers, magicians, and jugglers on August 23 at 6:30 p.m. The show is free to the public with donations greatly appreciated. The hour-and-a-half event continues each month, the next show is on September 20.

“A magic show has always been an ultimate goal of The Vanishing Wheelchair,” says T.J. Shimeld, president and co-founder of the non-profit. “It gives an opportunity for people to showcase their talents and work with one another as an ensemble. Everyone is the star of the show. We are delighted that the show has continued for a year, and keeps growing.” In fact, after each show there is at least one person in the audience who is either inspired to perform with The Vanishing Wheelchair, or help the non-profit’s mission.
