Some people say that there is nothing fun to do in Rush County. Well, get ready to have some fun! The Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Seed Circle is sponsoring an evening of family fun, entertainment, and magic. On Friday, July 11, 2014 renowned magician Rusty Ammerman will wow the crowds with his magical talents.
Rusty hails from Indiana and has traveled the United States and nine countries honing his craft. He has performed at major venues including the mecca for magicians, The Magic Castle in Hollywood. His family style entertainment appeals to audiences of all ages.
Magician Rusty comes to Rushville to entertain at the RMHF Seed Circle Family Fun Night for Pediatrics. This event is a fundraiser for the RMH Foundation’s Pediatric Office Building Fund.
“The new RMH Pediatric Office building opened last fall with RMH pediatrician Dr. Kedo managing over 4,000 patient visits last year. We could not wait until the funds were raised. The building had to be opened. Now we are continuing towards the goal of $670,000.00 for the building fund. This great event will help us get closer to our goal,” Faith Mock, RMH Foundation Director, said. “I am grateful to our Seed Circle for spearheading this magical event.”
The fundraiser will take place at the RushShelby Community Building located at the Rush County Fairgrounds. Tickets for the Family Fun Night will be sold at the door. Ticket prices are $20 adult, $10 child, $5 pre-school aged children. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with the magical performance to start at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be for sale.
In addition to the entertainment of Rusty Ammerman, the evening will begin with awarding the Rush County Youth Volunteer of the Year Award. This is the second year that this award had been presented.
“We have had a wonderful group of nominated young people this year. They are so committed to giving back to their community. Each one is a winner,” Anne Zachery, Seed Circle member, said.
