Three of the country’s top magicians are coming together on Saturday the 20th of February to put on a one-night-only show to raise funds for the UPliftment Programme.

Established six years ago, the UPliftment Programme has trained more than 50 volunteer care clowns who share joy with over 3 500 children every month. Operating across the country, the NPO visits children in hospitals and homes, providing them with regular doses of fun and laughter.  All proceeds raised from the event will go towards uplifting a further 500 children every month.

But it’s not just about helping out – it looks likely to be a world-class performance. Le Sueur, Eland and Oudejans have all independently built international profiles for themselves, with regular invitations all over the world…

The Magicians:

  • Jacques le Sueur, the only person to ever successfully steal (and return) former President Nelson Mandela’s wrist-watch (twice)
  • Andrew “Magic Man” Eland, one of the most experienced and well-travelled magicians in the country
  • Marcel Oudejans, recognised both locally and abroad as one of the busiest corporate event entertainment specialists in Africa.

The event takes place on 20 February 2010 (8-11pm) at the Grand West Casino.  Tickets cost R130, with all proceeds going directly to the UPliftment Programme.  Buy a ticket, or sponsor someone else to go at theup.org.za.
