Celebrate “Holiday Magic” with Magic, Mirth & Meaning

a Benefit for

The Vanishing Wheelchair, Inc., a 501(c)(3) Public Charity

Join the magician founders of the public charity The Vanishing Wheelchair, Inc. to share the magic of the season at St. Mary’s Church, 337 Charlotte Street in Asheville December 12 at 6:30 p.m. The family-friendly hour-and-a-half magic and music show is free to the public (donations are welcome).

Music and magic will fill St. Mary’s Church to reinforce the love of the season, and demonstrate that every person, no matter what level of ability, has a place in this world. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was made fun of because of his glowing nose,” Ricky D. Boone recalls, “but Santa knew it was the only thing that would cut through that thick fog.”

The Vanishing Wheelchair, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) public charity founded by Ricky Boone and T.J. Shimeld. It is inspired by the mystifying misdirection of Ricky who uses magic and comedy to make his disability a great ability. The Vanishing Wheelchair, Inc. wishes to raise funds to establish a universally accessible hands-on museum centered around a magic show for children of all abilities to explore the arts and sciences at which people with disabilities can work and learn skills in performing, painting, photography, music, crafts, and wood working. “Just like the old Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer movie,” Ricky jokes, “we wish to find a loving home for misfit toys.”

Ricky Boone’s biography, The Four-foot Giant and the Vanishing Wheelchair, is T.J. Shimeld’s sixth book. Proceeds from the book benefit the non-profit charitable organization.

Author T.J. Shimeld and Ricky D. Boone will be available to sign books after the shows. A suggested donation of $10 for adult tickets and $5 for children tickets is appreciated. Tickets may be available at the door, but advanced reservations are strongly encouraged since seating is limited. Contact Magic Central, 175 Weaverville Highway, Suite L, Asheville, North Carolina 28804, or call 828-645-2941.
