Parksville preschool to make some magic

Fundraising magic show on March 4 to support Sunrise Preschool

A Parksville preschool is looking to make a little fundraising magic with a magic show and silent auction on Sunday, March 4, at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre.

Qualicum Beach resident Paul Romhany is providing his fantastical magic services to star in the event, along with Jeff Christensen.

The show will also have a Charlie Chaplin performance and silent auction.

Sunrise Preschool has been around since 1974, a non-profit, is located at Craig Street Commons (330 Craig St.).

Families who use the preschool pay enrolment fees, but any additional costs for the program are funded through various fundraising efforts and donations from local business, preschool administrator Jenny Everett said.

Nine sponsors have thus far committed to help support the event, as well as other businesses making donations to the silent auction, she said.

The show takes place Sunday, March 4, at 3 p.m. at PCCC, 132 Jensen Ave. in Parksville.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children.

They can be purchased at Soak Essentials at 180 Craig St. in Parksville.
