Dear Fellow Performer:
You’re about to discover a complete system for developing, booking
and performing fundraising shows for community organizations … a system
that earns me a great living (grossing up to $100,000 or more in as few as
12 weeks per year!).
closely guarded my methods for over 20 years.
That’s how long I’ve been using this system. It’s NEVER been offered to other performers until now (in a

BIG BUCKS doing fundraising shows
for community groups
No pipedreams. The exact system I’ve been using for over two decades
to raise money for schools, service clubs, youth groups, associations,
societies and many others. A
system that’s been so amazingly successful at raising money for these
organizations that my show tours have been SELL-OUTS for
seven straight seasons … with many groups booking my fundraising
show year after year after year!
A System You Can Put To
Work Immediately That’ll “Jump-Start” You Into The Highly Profitable
Fundraising Industry … And Allow You To Very Quickly DOMINATE That Market.
and perfecting this system has allowed me to seize control of my magic
career. It’s enabled me to
turn what used to be a “dead” season into my most profitable time of the
year! It’s given me the
opportunity to perform the kind of magic I want, for the type of audiences I
Doing Fundraising Shows Is A Growth Industry
(are you getting your share of the pie?)
show opportunities are limitless. Especially
in this day and age. The
baby-boomer family market is HUGE, and getting bigger.
You can see this for yourself … just look at the renewed box-office
popularity of Disney movies. Look
at how much family TV programming is now being offered. Look at the phenomenal success of the “Harry Potter” and
“Goosebumps” books. And
“The Magic Schoolbus”. The
list goes on and on.
for all this “family audience product” is obvious.
There’s a LOT of families out there!
course, more families mean more schools.
More schools mean more parent committees, more student councils, more
field trips, more band uniforms. More
families also mean more minor sports, more daycare societies, more kid
camps, more community programs.
funding for these sorts of things is drying up all the time
… which is why there’s a growing demand on fundraising to help groups
carry on their programs and activities.

With my system in your hands, you can too.
why would I give away
my personal success formula for
making big money doing fundraising shows?
simple, really … I no longer fear competition in this arena. When it comes to doing fundraising shows in my market, I’m
THE guy. I’ve got as much
work as I can handle (as you’ve already learned, my show tours have been
selling-out for years).
don’t plan on expanding my territory.
With a wife and two young kids, I’m staying pretty close to home
these days. Being based in
Richmond BC on the west coast of Canada, there’s little chance that I’m
going to be looking for work in Flint MI, Albuquerque NM, Tallahassee FL or
wherever you may hail from.
I hope to make a buck or two from releasing my methods. But let’s get this straight … magic’s been very, very
good to me. I’ve accumulated
a warehouse of priceless experience from focusing on the
fundraising market during the past twenty years.

I’ve learned through the school of hard knocks is of tremendous value to
anyone else that wants to shrink the learning curve and leap-frog
up the ladder in this fast-growing, hugely profitable market.
I’ll not only show you
how I’ve done it, I’ll provide a step-by-step system that you can use to
duplicate – perhaps even surpass – my success.
Phones. NO Percentages.
Charge what you want, and get it. PERIOD.
more (and for me, this has been the best part) … my system doesn’t
involve telemarketing. It
also doesn’t rely on percentage-based income.
not saying that you can’t do well with these other ways of doing
fundraising shows. There are
certainly those who’ve had their success with telemarketing.
It just wasn’t for me, that’s all.
simply never had any desire to go through the process of setting up phone
rooms, hiring and managing employees, risking a large amount of capital on
the venture, and taking the heat for being associated with an industry
filled with “boiler room” fly-by-nighters.
Let’s face it: telemarketing
has a cloudy reputation at best.
Besides … who likes being hassled by phone salespeople anyway?!?
With my system, you can forget about having to
irritate people selling tickets by phone.
And, as for “percentage”
Frankly, I’m just not
comfortable with the risk factor.
You know … where you put yourself at the mercy of the group
you’re working with, praying that they’ll make the effort
necessary to fill the seats at your shows in the hopes that you can both
make some money.
Or where you have to bust
your knuckles doing a whole bunch of pre-show promoting, and nursing
sponsors along. Then too,
there’s the added stress of not even knowing how much you’re being
paid to do your show until after it’s all over!
groups do a fine job. But for
those that don’t, you’ve just invested a ton of time, effort and money
to do a show for free? Or at a
loss??? Uh, uh.
I don’t think so. Not
the only sponsors I’ve ever seen do alright with a percentage arrangement
(and again, only some of the time) are schools.
One of the major reasons for my success is that I’m not limited
to doing just school fundraisers. Because
of the system
I’ve developed, my client base
has expanded TEN-FOLD to include many, many other types of community
organizations ... all of whom have an equal
opportunity to raise thousands of dollars by following the project plan I

So as for
percentages … no, thanks. I

what? Perfecting this system
has created greater success for my sponsors, too.
Groups that work with my program consistently raise between $1,000
and $3,000 … with earnings frequently being as high as $5,000 to $8,000!!!
(yes indeed … my sponsors love me!).
what makes my Fundraising Magic™ program
sure-fire money-maker for sponsors
and an easy sell to your clients
For starters, the
fundraising program I’ve developed puts the sponsor in the driver’s
seat. It’s a step-by-step
plan that literally lets a group decide how much they want to earn from your
show event and go out and get it. Simply
by following the plan and using the tools provided, they’re able to raise
as much money as they need.
(As you can
see from the sponsor testimonials I’ve included with this report, groups
working with this plan typically raise in the thousands of dollars for

having this step-by-step system empowers your sponsors. They have complete control over their fundraising project.
They don’t have to worry that a third-party promoter is
representing their group improperly, or that they’ll receive their
entitled share of the proceeds. They
decide how much they want to make, and simply follow the steps outlined in
big plus is that they’ll be able to use this system to achieve greater
success with a good many more of their other fundraisers … talk about
providing extra-value to your customers!

too much work. The thing that was missing was some kind of a
