DO Magic Show Fundraiser
Saturday, May 25, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
ADDRESS: across the street from the Roy Rogers, you'll see a gated community. Go to the gaurd tower and tell them you're going to the performance center.
Magicians from around the East Coast are uniting to support one of their own by putting on an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime show for the public.

ABOUT DAVID OLIVER
David Oliver needs major lung surgery for a potentially fatal lung affliction called hypersensitivity pneumonitis or Bird Fancier's Lung, caused by working and living for more than 25 years with the birds in his show. Though the doves were removed from his show, the damage was already done. The August 2011 issue of Genii Magazine detailed his ordeal with the birds ("Death Defying Dove Acts"), complete with a list of symptoms and how to avoid the same situation. Currently, David is unable to work as he awaits further treatment.
