The Making Magic Show 2012

Making Magic 2012 – Thank you!

The 3rd Annual Making Magic Show presented and supported by Boston Pizza & Boston Pizza Foundation took place on June 3 at River Rock Show Theater.  We had a great turn out of over 500 guests and raised a whopping $15,000!  The funds will support our new province-wide grant program for charities and non-profits in our sector.  It was an amazing event with facepainters, Hoopla Photobooth, cotton candy, popcorn, games and of course our feature attraction: Trevor & Lorena Watters and guests!

We would like to thank our sponsors: Boston Pizza, Boston Pizza Foundation, CTV, TELUS, River Rock Casino Resort, The Peak, JRfm, Lifelabs & Argen.  And thank you to our supporters, donors, volunteers and guests!  The event would not have been possible without your support.

If you missed the show, check out this awesome video (and photos below) from Three Sixty Photography.

Stay tuned for dates for next year’s event!

The 3rd Annual Making Magic Show presented and supported by Boston Pizza and Boston Pizza Foundation

We are pleased to announce that Boston Pizza and Boston Pizza Foundation will be our 3rd Annual Making Magic Show Presenting Sponsors.  Throughout the years, Boston Pizza and Boston Pizza Foundation have been fantastic supporters to Cures for Kids and we are grateful for all they’ve done!

Cheryl Treliving, Executive Director of the Boston Pizza Foundation shares her thoughts on Cures for Kids and the Making Magic Show:

“Cures for Kids started as an idea and through hard work, dedication, and perseverance Perri Tutleman, along with her hardworking Board of Directors, has grown it into an accomplished, and well respected charitable organization having tremendous impact on children’s lives.

From  my very first meeting in 2009, when Perri pitched the Cures for Kids “Making Magic Show” partnership to Boston Pizza, it was evident she is an extraordinary young lady with maturity and insight beyond her years. As true to how engaging this young lady can be with her purpose, she continues to spend countless hours, furthering her research, expanding her personal volunteer reach, excelling at her academics and growing her Cures for Kids Foundation – translating her passions into community action and impact.

Cures for Kids 1st fundraising event, the “Making Magic Show”, was a sold out event raising almost $15,000; the 2nd year’s event was more than double in size raising $35,000; we are confident year 3 will also be a tremendous success!

Boston Pizza and the Boston Pizza Foundation are very proud supporters of the Cures for Kids Foundation and the Making Magic Show event!”


Again, thank you to our wonderful friends at Boston Pizza and Boston Pizza Foundation for their support.  See you guys at the event!
