Project Magic is a worldwide, medically-certified program that uses magic as therapy to aid physically challenged patients in rehabilitation.
“For years, I’ve followed David’s work and he is such an inspiration to kids everywhere. He shows them that childhood dreams can come true,” Optimist President Danny Rodgers said. “Giving David this award shows kids and adults that having dreams and a positive attitude will take you far in life.”
The “Bringing Out the Best” Award is given at the Optimist president’s discretion and recognizes individuals who exemplify the Optimist Creed through their commitment to helping others and spreading optimism.
“David created Project Magic over 20 years ago and it’s amazing to see how it has grown over the years. It’s more than just assisting the patients. His program is designed to be fun and help build patients’ self-esteem,”
Rodgers will present the award along with a Friend of Optimists membership. The Friend of Optimists membership is for individuals to show their support for Optimist International and can be bestowed on an individual who has contributed to their community in a significant way.
