Last year, the Boston Ring of the International Brotherhood of Magicians staged a two hour show to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research during the Wellsesley Wonderful Weekend. Alzheimer’s still hasn’t been cured yet, so they’re doing it again this year.
The show runs from 4pm to 6pm at the Wellesley Community Center on May 19th, with the proceeds going to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. The fund’s board of directors are covering all overhead costs, so 100% of every donation made to the fund goes towards research into the crippling disease.
The master of ceremonies for the show will be the Boston Ring’s president, Bruce Fenton, who will be joined by the following performers:
Magician and cartoonist, Alan Wassilak, combines the art of illusion with the art of, um, art, to perform unique tricks.
Pat Farenga is a magician, magic teacher and editor of The Silent Messenger newsletter.
Young, but with the classical charm of a born magician, Ryan Lally adds a touch of class to the proceedings.
Wellesley’s own Gil Stubbs and his associate, Jerry Schiowitz, will be performing “on-demand” close up magic before the show and during the intermission.
Those seasoned magicians will also be joined by performers Danny Winter and Mikey Lee.
