2018 marks the third year in a row that Mat has teamed up with Sunny 106.5 and Petco to collect items from The Animal Foundation’s wish list in celebration of the third anniversary of his award-winning show, Mat Franco – Magic Reinvented Nightly. During the month-long pet supply drive, visitors to any Las Vegas-area Petco location that purchased a minimum of $10 worth of items from the organization’s wish list, or a gift card of equivalent value, received one complimentary ticket voucher to see Mat Franco – Magic Reinvented Nightly in the Mat Franco Theater at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

“Since I arrived in Las Vegas, the community has been so supportive of the show and this is just one of the ways I like to show my appreciation every year,” said the “America’s Got Talent” winner. “The Animal Foundation provides an essential service to our community and we’re always happy to give back.”
