24 Hours of Magic Shows Will Benefit Children's Miracle Network

Posted: Updated: Dec 5, 2012 04:41 PM EST

Instead of making things disappear, one Ruckersville magician is trying to make wishes come true. Starting on Wednesday, Wes Iseli will perform 72 magic shows for 24 hours straight to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network.

Iseli is performing outside the Walmart in Ruckersville until Thursday morning. 2012 marks the sixth year he's done the 24 hour magic show, and says it's always an honor to use his talents to support a good cause.

"I'm an entertainer, starting out and doing kids parties and things like that... children, children, children. I have a one-year-old now. The stories you hear about heart surgeries and bypass surgeries of little kids, yeah, it touches you," said Iseli.

The Children's Miracle Network provides vital medical care for kids. Iseli will perform at the Ruckersville Walmart until 10 a.m. Thursday.
