Foundation Spring Scholarship Benefit to be held on May 10th

Annual fundraiser to feature premier illusionist Michael Cantori

The Garrett College Foundation is preparing for this year’s upcoming spring scholarship benefit. The 9th annual fundraiser will take place on Friday, May 10, 2019 at Twin Tails Event Farm in Oakland. The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. with cocktails followed by dinner and entertainment. All proceeds for the event will support scholarships for Garrett College students.

Members of the spring scholarship committee have selected Michael Cantori, one of the region’s premier illusionists from the DC area, to provide class-act entertainment for the event.

Cantori spent his formative years in both our nation’s capital and in Europe, with an exorbitant amount of time sequestered in his father's subterranean workshop, "Dunninger's Encyclopedia of Magic" in hand. He went on to receive a university education in the sciences, while excelling in the martial arts as both a competitor and instructor.

He quickly gave up a traditional career path for the art of mystification and prestidigitation while concurrently managing numerous small businesses within the arts, as well as teaching self-defense for various institutions.

In addition to being a full-time performer, Cantori has taught graduate level classes in magic and awareness at the University of Maryland, has read the fortunes of congressmen, senators, and rock stars, and finds the time to design & craft magical apparatus, which he has supplied to some of the finest illusionists in the world.

For additional information on the upcoming event, including ticket prices or sponsorships, persons may contact the Garrett College Foundation office at 301-387-3131.
