Copperfield Performing Special Benefit Show for Kids of Courage


Combining magic with courage to improve the lives of children struggling with life-threatening illness


LAS VEGAS, Aug. 6, 2018 — Kids of Courage, a medically-supervised travel program for seriously sick children and young adults, is currently in Las Vegas for their annual summer adventure. The unique non-profit program provides adaptive activities and events for individuals with life-threatening illnesses and serious disabilities. The current group consists of 120 medically-fragile campers from all over North America, accompanied by volunteer physicians, nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and caretaker counselors.

World-renowned illusionist David Copperfield, in partnership with the MGM Grand, is conducting a benefit performance, completely free of charge, for the visiting group on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 at 4 p.m. PDT at The David Copperfield Theater at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

Mr. Copperfield has a long history of supporting organizations that improve the lives of children and young adults with disabilities. The ground-breaking performer founded Project Magic, an innovative program that uses magic as a form of therapy for people with physical, psychological, and social disabilities.

Kids of Courage participants have a wide variety of serious illnesses and disabilities, including childhood cancers; muscular dystrophy; childhood strokes; pre- and post-heart, -liver, and –lung transplants; brain tumors; quadriplegia with ventilator dependence; spina bifida and cerebral palsy.

Many of the so-called “Couragers” are struggling with life-threatening situations. Participation in the program gives them unique skill sets for independence and leaves their parents at home to recover from the daily stresses of their care.

About Kids of Courage:

Kids of Courage, based in New York, is a true non-profit 501(c)(3). There is no charge to any participants or their families. Funds are used strictly for programming and caring for the children. The organization was created in 2008 when the co-founders saw a need for year-round trips and events, including adaptive programs such as skiing and water sports in weeklong travel adventures.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
