Rising Starz Fundraiser For Make-A-Wish

Pipestone Flyer

Set aside this Saturday, October 25th, for the First Annual Rising Starz Event, showcasing the talents of local performers with the intent to raise enough money to grant a wish to a wish child. The ‘magic’ of a wish can reinvigorate an entire family that desperately needs a chance to smile, laugh and live without the constant reminder of pain and illness.

This year, the event will kick off with The Blush Girls, a tremendous musical trio from Sherwood Park, who have been actively supporting Make- A-Wish with their incredible voices for over 10 years, raising thousands of dollars for this worthwhile organization.

Immediately following The Blush Girls will follow a full-scale, grand illusion show. From productions and vanishes, to escapes and levitations, this show has it all. It’s reminiscent of the shows you would typically see on a Las Vegas stage, and it’s sure to amaze. The illusions have reached such a scale that Rising Starz has actually doubled the size of the entire illusion team just to make this event a reality.

At the end of the evening, an announcement will be made as to how much money has been raised. With each wish granted, we will be physically raising a star to the ceiling of the theatre. As this event continues, year after year, we will keep track of every wish granted. One day, Rising Starz hopes to walk into the theatre and see a ceiling full of raised stars.

The event kicks off at 6 pm at the Reynolds Alberta Museum Theatre. Tickets at tixonthesquare.ca or call 780.420.1757 or 780.907.6273 for more info.
