Lance Burton and cast to greet Sunshine Foundation

For the seventh time Lance Burton and his cast will host The Sunshine Foundation children for his "Master Magician" show and a meet-and-greet with autograph signing and photos. Some 40 seats on the main floor will be filled with the children and chaperons including nurses. The week-long Las Vegas trip for the group costs $500,000 not counting donations like Lance Burton's show tickets. The Sunshine Foundation's sole purpose is to answer the dreams of seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children aged three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child's illness may cause. Lance Burton will be available for photo opportunity and interviews at 8:30 p.m. tonight (Thursday) after the show at 8:30 p.m. as he meets and greets the children along with the cast in the Lance Burton Theatre on their week-long odyssey. They come from hospitals from throughout the U.S.
