Here at Magicanasharing wonder comes first and foremost.

Trying to advance magic as a performing art involves presenting magic as a means of empowerment. We aim to develop alternative ways of thinking and to inspire the younger generation through its rich history. It is always a thrill when we discover budding new magicians eager to learn, and one of these young, promising magicians is  Sawyer Bullock of Wassaga Beach, Ontario.

Sawyer reached out to us through the Tony Eng Youth Fund. At 16, his passion for magic appears to have no bounds and magic has enriched his life for the last four years. We provided Sawyer, a community-driven young man teeming with leadership qualities, a bursary to help him attend the Canadian Association of Magicians (CAM) 2012 convention. In his application, Sawyer expressed a heartfelt desire to meet Vancouver-based magician and President of CAM, Shawn Farquhar. We were pleased to provide  Sawyer with the grant to achieve this goal and to also compete in the magic competitions at CAM.

The Tony Eng Youth Fund was created in memory of Tony Eng in 2008. Thanks to the generous donations of our donors and to our Tony Eng Youth Fund partner, Kent Wong, we are able to continue our funding activities such as providing bursaries to young people to go towards their magical experiences and education. For more information about how to contribute or how to apply to this fund, visit www.magicana.com/tonyeng.
