Magic & Mingling takes place April 26, 2013

Prepare to be mesmerized at the Junior League of Central Westchester’s (JLCW) Spring Fundraiser, Magic & Mingling on Friday, April 26, 2013. Taking place at The Coliseum in White Plains, NY, the evening promises many magical treats and surprises including entertainment by Dan White, a fabulous buffet dinner and cocktails and an amazing silent auction.

Magician Dan White is internationally-acclaimed and has mystified audiences around the globe. He is the creator and star of the Discovery Channel’s The Supernaturalist in which he travels through Nepal in search of the miraculous. White serves as head magic producer for David Blaine and has recently become a creative consultant for illusionist David Copperfield.

In addition to White’s performance, the evening’s silent auction is not to be missed. A sampling of some of the fantastic items include:

  • NY Knicks sneakers signed by JR Smith
  • An Autographed Brooklyn Nets Basketball by renowned player Gerald Wallace
  • Shopping party for 20 friends at high-end retailer Rebecca Taylor in White Plains
  • Dinner at the Capital Grille and theatre tickets for a night out in New York City
  • 1 week in the Dominican Republic in a luxury 4-bedroom villa

Tickets are $85 each through April 16 when the price increases to $100 per ticket. Admission includes a buffet dinner, open bar and entertainment. Guests are asked to dress in their best “club chic” attire. The evening will also feature a fun raffle with a top prize of two domestic American Airlines tickets generously donated by JLCW’s Ruby Sponsor, American Airlines.


“Magic & Mingling promises to be the event of the season. We are so excited to have Dan White performing, and the array of items we have for the silent auction is amazing – there is truly something for everyone,” said Lauren Wyler-Smith, President of the Junior League of Central Westchester. “The funds raised for the JLCW will be incredibly helpful in our mission to improve the local community through charitable works.”


Proceeds from Magic & Mingling support the JLCW’s programs that promote health and literacy, provide food and necessities to the underprivileged, empower low-income families, help preserve community history and train effective community volunteers.
