Mission Springs Community Church (MSCC) and A Magic One Entertainment present the fourth annual variety extravaganza. There will be two shows on Saturday, December 6.
Proceeds benefit Mission Springs Community Church (MSCC) and its missions. "We will be raising funds to benefit several worthwhile organizations while bringing people together to enjoy a very special time during the holidays. Besides showcasing a variety of talent, we will be holding raffles and silent and live auctions. This is a great opportunity to bid on or win some really fun prizes for friends and family," said Katherine Chandler, Executive Assistant, Cisco Systems, Inc. It promises to be fun and entertaining with awesome singers, talented musicians, three competition dance troupes, and award-winning magicians.
"We'll have walk-around magicians to entertain you while you check out our raffle prizes and silent auction items," said Chandler.
The shows will benefit YoungLife, a ministry that reaches out to adolescents through volunteers, staff, club meetings and camps; Path Light International, that provides education and care to at-risk children; Tri-City Homeless Coalition, that assists low-income, un-housed people to secure stable, supportive housing, and MSCC's Mexico house-building, that provides homes and basic every-day necessities to needy families.
The event will be ASL interpreted. Tickets are priced at $20 per person. Every admission ticket will be entered into a drawing contest, and a lucky winner will be chosen during each show.
