Thanks to everyone who has made a donation to our annual appeal. As of this writing we are just $7,685 away from meeting our $40,000 goal, which, thanks to our matching grants, will magically become $80,000 if we can meet it. Those kind donors have allowed us to extend the appeal period to Jan. 15, so please, if you haven’t yet made your donation, it’s not too late! Every little bit helps, and remember, it will be doubled if we meet this goal!

Peter Boie presents Magic for Nonbelievers
7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 26
Boie’s show is about two things – astonishing magic, and having a good time – and he doesn’t skimp on either. He travels around the country performing his award-winning magic that will defy your reality (you might recognize him by his trademark orange sneakers).
The show’s title, “Magic for Nonbelievers,” is about being honest with his audience. Magic isn’t real, but Boie will make you believe it is for the length of his show. Combining original mind blowing magic and a heavy dose of humor is what’s made him one of the top booked college acts around the country.
Boie recently showcased his talents on national TV, where he performed for the CW Network’s hit show, “Penn & Teller: Fool Us.” He has performed for such celebrities as Neil Young and Tom Brady, and he was also nominated for Entertainer of the Year from Campus Activities Magazine in 2015, as well as many other awards.
We’re thrilled that he will also be performing his engineering magic show for students on Friday morning, which we’re offering as part of our field trip program to area schools. If your school hasn’t signed up yet, please call 380-7313 for details.
Adult online tickets are available for $15 in advance or $20 the day of the event. Youth tickets (ages 17 and under) are available for $10 each. Doors open at 6 p.m. Concessions will be available for purchase.
