What will you do this summer? Seventeen Girl Scouts departed Wednesday morning, July 6, for a 19-day journey to India. Before taking off on their international adventure, the girls participated in some local Las Vegas fun with Comedy-Magician Mac King and Sumita Beauty.  

On Tuesday, July 5, the girls enjoyed some laughter and magic at the Mac King Comedy-Magic Show at Harrah’s Las Vegas. King is partnering with the Girl Scouts to help spread his literacy initiative, Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour, overseas. During their visit, King presented the girls with plaid suitcases full of books. On behalf of Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour, the girls will distribute the books to children in India during their journey and spread the love of reading overseas.
