It was an absolutely wonderful event. Four years ago, after we produced an Obama fundraiser featuring close-up magicians, - an evening of "A-Barack-Cadabra" - I was offered the chance to put together a group of 20 magicians to do strolling magic at the American Legion's Salute to Heroes Ball (honoring the living Congressional Medal of Honor recipients), I reached out to my buddy, Alain Nu, who had arranged for much of the talent for the fundraiser, we invited some of the best names around...and the Legion loved it. So this year, the Legion asked for 25 magicians to entertain their 800 guests, and you can see from Andrew Pinard's list, the amazing quality of the group. Given the diversity of styles, and the high level of the magic, it was like a dream magician's convention. With an appearance by Joe Biden, and a heartfelt speech by Tom Brokaw, it was an amazing night. Kudos to Alain for assembling this amazing cadre of conjurers, and to all of the fine performers, who came to DC on their own dime and did themselves proud.
