Penn & Teller joined the crowd for an exclusive meet and greet session, taking photos with beloved fans and personally thanking them for their tireless fundraising efforts. The silent half of the duo gave magic lessons to intrigued guests, showing them how a sly hand with cards can leave watchers astonished.

As the evening progressed, AFAN staff addressed the audience, presenting Penn & Teller with a ten year commemorative plaque as a token of their appreciation. Guests then made their way to the Penn & Teller Theater to watch a live jazz performance by Mike Jones Duo and enjoy complimentary tickets to the mind-boggling show.
