The Hillrise PTO is trying something new this year. Instead of doing a free Family Movie Night, we’re doing a live, family-fun event, “Magic of the Holidays,” featuring award-winning magician Joe Cole.
“With the holidays, people can get incredibly busy,” said Hillrise PTO President Kim LaGrange, “so we thought we’d offer Hillrise families the opportunity to take a breather and enjoy an experience together.”
Social Events Chair Mary McKenna came up with the idea of bringing Magician Joe Cole to Hillrise. “I really wanted something that would be interactive and appeal to all ages,” said Mary. “I’ve seen Joe perform before and thought he was incredibly entertaining and funny to both kids and parents.”
One important criteria to the event was that it remain free for Hillrise families. In order to do that, the Social Events Committee had to get creative. “In addition to looking for businesses to sponsor the show, we’re hoping families will be interested in a chance to win reserved, front-row seating, so we came up with the idea of the raffle,” said Mary. “For just $5, an entire family could win the chance to sit in the front row — prime seating for a magic show!”
No matter where you’re sitting, “Magic of the Holidays” is sure to be 45 minutes of pure entertainment the kids — and adults — won’t soon forget!
“MAGIC OF THE HOLIDAYS” | Thursday | December 7 | 6:30 pm to 7:15 pm | FREE admission
