Our son's school has an outstanding PTA which fosters a great sense of community. The big fundraising event each year is a gala evening for the grown-ups with a silent auction that includes "Pay-to-Play" events -- a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences hosted by parents to raise money for school programs.
Couldn't think of a better way to be involved than to organize an intimate, little evening of magic for a select audience.
As this was our first go at something like this, we capped the event at 5 couples and quickly met the limit. Guests arrived and were offered hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer. Once settled, I presented just over an hour of close-up magic behind the bar.
Hopefully this is the start of something special.
