Special Children’s World Festival of Magic

The Lions Club of Palm Beach Currumbin is once again hosting the World Festival of Magic to raise vital funds for special needs children.

Touring for 22 years in 55 cities throughout Australia and New Zealand, the World Festival of Magic is the longest running international magic show of its kind.

The show is for families with special needs children and tickets are donated by local businesses.

The Lottery Office CEO Jaclyn Wood has pledged $3,000, allowing 50 children to attend the festival.

“The World Festival of Magic raises funds for charities every year and provides disadvantaged kids the chance to see a spectacular live illusion show,” Ms Wood said.

The Lottery Office donates a percentage of the cost of every ticket sold to charities across the country, allowing the organisation to make a positive impact on the lives of everyday Australians.

The Lions Club of Palm Beach Currumbin project manager Rhonda Bennett said COVID-19 is all the more reason to raise money for children in need.

“The children invited to the event and benefit from the funds raised suffer from a range of diseases and conditions, making them even more vulnerable to COVID-19,” Ms Bennett said.

“We also sponsor underprivileged children, with a large number of those in protective custody and waiting for foster placement. Given the challenges this year has presented for so many families, we want to create a positive day for our locals and allow them to appreciate the joys of community, magic and laughter.”

The Lottery Office urges anyone interested in donating to call The Lions Club of Palm Beach Currumbin on 07 3917 9101.
