Making wishes come true with magic

Posted: Updated:

UNL students and illusionists, David Michael Fox and Matthew Rightmire, have been performing magic for years.  Now they're taking their talent and using it for a good cause: raising money for Make-A-Wish Foundation.  

The show is called Magic Marvels: An Evening of Granting Wishes.  David and Matthew will be doing tricks, reading minds, and of course, cutting a person in half.  David said it's all for a good cause.  "Let's do it for charity.  That would make us happy.  It'd make someone else happy and it would give us a reason to do it," David said.  

The illusionists are working together with Chi Omega sorority to donate proceeds from the show and a silent auction to Make-A-Wish Foundation in hopes of using magic to make a child's wish come true.  "It's giving people a chance to escape life for a couple of hours.  Enjoy the amazement and wonderment of being a kid again and seeing magic for the very first time," Matthew said.  

David and Matthew hope to raise around $5,000.  If you want to help them reach their goal and see some magic, they're putting on 2 shows this Saturday at the UNL Howell Theatre: a matinee at 1:30 and another show at 7:30.  Tickets are available at
