An illusionist who has performed around the world is bringing his show to Red Deer to raise money for the Boys and Girls Club.
Derek Selinger, a renowned speaker, entertainer and illusionist, will host a performance of Selinger’s Wonder on June 14 and June 15 at the Memorial Centre.
The shows are presented by Telus, with all proceeds to support the Boys and Girls Club of Red Deer and District.
