"The Gift" is the essence of the art of magic and illusion played out on stage in a 90-minute theatrical performance through the talents of award winning illusionist and master magician Derek Selinger! Experiencing the art of altered perception through the lens of Derek’s unique talent will not only leave you mystified and entertained, but also inspired and uplifted by the magic of life itself. No spandex. No sequins. Just smooth style. Selinger has performed in Las Vegas and is said to be "one of the brightest stars in the world of magic."

All proceeds from Derek Selinger's, "The Gift", performed in Lloydminster, will be donated to The Refuge. The Refuge is located in Ensenada, Mexico and advocates for girls who come from situations of poverty, abandonment, violence or trafficking. The Refuge provides girls a safe place to live, opportunities for counseling, healing, education, personal growth, and the courage to dream to make a difference in their community.

 

The Refuge was founded by Randy and Sandra Huebert, long time Lloydminster residents who moved to Mexico in 2008 to open the safe house where they currently reside full time to run the organization and care for the girls.
