Atlanta Magician Turner to Appear at Dallas Theater to Benefit McKenna Farms

Dallas, GA, June 5, 2008 – Professional magician Joe M. Turner puts the “fun” in “fundraising” on Saturday, June 28, when he takes the stage at the Dallas Theater in a show with proceeds to benefit McKenna Farms, a non-profit provider of therapy services for special needs individuals. The public is invited to attend the family-friendly show which begins at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $5 per person, available in advance from McKenna Farms or at the door.

McKenna Farms Therapy Services was founded in 2001 and is directed by Jessica Moore. “This organization started as a dream 8 years ago,” says Moore. “And now it’s a special place for special kids. We need and appreciate community supporters like Joe, who understand how great our need is.”

“The Farm is a magical place all in itself,” explains Kerstin Liberty, who conceived and coordinated the benefit appearance. “I see miracles happen every time I am there with the children. It’s amazing to see what happens during the interaction between the horses, the patients, and the therapists. They make it easy to love volunteering for such a wonderful organization. McKenna Farms certainly deserves and appreciates the community’s support.”

“As a relative newcomer to this part of the metro area, I was actually looking for some places to plug in when I met Kerstin,” notes Turner, who built a new home in the northwestern suburbs last year. “Her enthusiasm for this organization is contagious and I’m just thrilled to be invited to help.”

Turner, a popular entertainer and speaker at corporate and private events across America, has also performed for church groups and charitable organizations in the United States, Canada and Europe. He is a repeat performer at top entertainment venues in Hollywood, Atlantic City, and New York City, and he was also featured in a CNN Headline News segment focusing on his application of magic to corporate marketing. Turner’s one-man cabaret show, Shenanigans, was cited as one of former Atlanta mayor Sam Massell’s top entertainment picks in an Atlanta Business Chronicle article.
