Cures for Kids Making Magic Show 2012

Comments 31 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Cures for Kids Making Magic ShowCures for Kids presents their 3rd annual Making Magic Show on Sunday, June 3, 2012 at the River Rock in partnership with Boston Pizza and the Boston Pizza Foundation.

The festivities start at 1:30pm as families and children of all ages enjoy carnival treats, an interactive learning centre, a dress-up photobooth, face painting, and the main event – the magic show which will begin at 3:00pm.

Internationally acclaimed artists, Trevor and Lorena Watters, will be accompanied by other talented performers as they dazzle with laughter, music, and illusions. The afternoon will be hosted by CTV’s Michael Kuss.

Tickets are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $15.00 (plus fees) and proceeds benefit Cures for Kids.

Last year, I interviewed Cures for Kids’ founder Perri Tutelman who started the organization and was named one of BC’s “Top 20 Under 20” in 2009:

Already a volunteer at Canuck Place, she wanted to do more. “I told myself can do more than being a physical help once a week for 4 hours,” Perri told me during our telephone chat last week. “I do it all because I love to do it – and my age isn’t an obstacle, it just pushes me further.”

Cures for Kids currently supports pediatric health research projects at UBC and the BC Children’s Hospital, with plans to go national in the future. With the support of traditional media and social networking (Twitter & Facebook), word is spreading quickly about this initiative. Perri’s goal is to finish up high school and continue her studies to become a doctor in pediatrics. “I want to be helping kids no matter what.”
