MAGICIANS SQUARE OFF IN A BATTLE LIKE NO OTHER IN
THE BATTLE OF MAGICIANS
Ray Anderson and the Magic of Richard Forget team up for a night of comedy, magic and illusions. High energy, laugh out loud funny, state of the art illusions and lighting make this show a night you won’t forget.
This is an exciting new journey for the Fight To End Cancer as the fight expands outside of the confines of the boxing ring. The show in January will be the first of the national tour that Richard and Ray will be embarking on. In addition to raising funds for the charity, a portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the Fight To End Cancer. In the months leading up to and throughout their National tour, Richard and Ray will be competing to raise funds for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
This partnership has been a long time in the making. Fight To End Cancer’s Founder, Jennifer Huggins has travelled the world as a “Magicians Assistant” working with Richard for over a decade. In Jennifer’s words:
“Much of my inspiration for the Fight To End Cancer Boxing Gala has come from the work I have been a part of with Richard. From stage shows and tours to International television shows, I feel honoured to have had the influence of magic in my life. The partnership of The Battle Of Magicians and my cause Fight To End Cancer is a dream come true”
Our gala event is just one part of an ongoing fundraising effort by Fight To End Cancer, which will continue throughout the year and whose success will in large part, rely on community teamwork and continued media exposure. Though the Boxing Gala in June 2016 will continue to be the “Main Event” celebration of our fundraising efforts, partnering with the Battle Of The Magicians brings two new members to our #FTEC2016 Fight Team.
With these efforts, we are confident we will reach our goal of raising over $1,000,000 annually by 2018 to support this cause.
