MURRAY ‘Celebrity Magician’ hosted his first ‘Beggin’ For Golf’ tournament for the ‘Friends For Life Humane Society’. A corresponding magic show called ‘Beggin’ For Magic II’ will be held on Aug. 5, 2014 at Tropicana Laugh Factory (Red Carpet at 2pm; Show at 4pm).
Comedy Magician and Tropicana Headliner Murray SawChuck along with Kent Asaki, the co-founder of Friends For Life, organized the golf tournament and were thrilled with the response of over 60 golfers at the Siena Golf Club in Summerlin.
The weather was perfect with a little overcast to bring the heat down. Everyone who signed up received a gift bag full of coupons and pet treats. Then they began playing the 18 holes, while Murray hopped in a golf cart and personally went around handing out and lighting cigars to players. He also gave away 2 VIP tickets his show at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino Laugh Factory and thanked all of them personally for being there.
As a surprise, Anita Mann’s cast of FANTASY from the Luxor Hotel & Casino greeted the golfers at the longest drive hole. The girls took photos with the golfers and cheered them on and the longest drive player won a prize package to come see the show FANTASY. The girls on hand were Murray’s wife Chloe Crawford, Tracey Gittins, Danielle Aveyard and Mariah Rivera who were perfectly dressed in their golf attire!
“We’ve had donations from many great companies,” said Murray, “along with an original painting by local famed artist Tommy Vinci. Jay Schellen ‘Rock Vault’ drummer as well as drummer for various band like Hurricane, Asia, and YES bid on the painting and won it to add to his collection.”
Jay Schellen said, “Murray’s golf tournament was really a class A day!”
The team from Friends For Life, Ron, Robert, Henry, and Lynette were on hand, and Murray said, “The love they have for these animals is so heart warming as if each one of the puppies is their own.”
Murray continued, “Thanks to Kent for suggesting this idea as I really never thought about it or how to plan a golf tournament. It was a huge success and I plan on doing it yearly along with my magic show for Friends For Life!”
Don’t forget Murray and Chloe’s show, ‘Beggin’ For Magic II’ this Tuesday Aug. 5 (Red Carpet at 2pm; Show at 4pm). Special guests will include Lance Burton, Michael Goudeau, Fielding West, Mark Bennick, Lisa Marie Smith, Jim D’Arrigo and Tim Molyneaux. It’s going to be an exciting show!
