Reception & Performance of The Illusionists

Read to Succeed Providence Performing Arts Center Marquee Room Reception and Performance of The Illusionists.

On January 17, 2015, Read to Succeed hosted a Marquee Room Reception before an internationally acclaimed performance by The Illusionists. Seven of the most successful illusionists in the world, including Aka Yu Ho-Jin, the 2014 Magician of the Year, dazzled our Read to Succeed patrons with acts of illusion, mind reading, disappearance, and a full view water tank escape by escapologist Andrew Basso. During the reception, guests heard remarks from Barbara Papitto, co-founder of Read to Succeed, as well as heartfelt endorsements and comments about the impact of the program on students from our Providence partner schools.

We wish to thank to our donors for another successful event that funds college scholarships for our 2015 Read to Succeed scholars!
