We hosted our 3rd Annual St. Patrick's Day Shindig on Tuesday March 17, 2015 in the Symposium in the SAIT Campus Centre. This was an open event this year to all AUPE members and guests. The food was prepared by Chartwells and was fantastic!
Entertainment was provided by mentalist Yeats Wong. Yeats is able to both entertain, and amaze audiences - with psychology, scientific phenomenon, weird 'brain hacks', and the art of mental illusion. Yeats Wong has been performing as a stage entertainer for over 20 years, for corporate and family audiences around Calgary and across Western Canada. Yeats has studied under mentalists from all over North America, and is mentored by one of the top retired mentalists in Alberta. He has won 3 awards in international stage competitions for his unique brand of stage entertainment. Yeats also runs his own consistently sold-out stage show, A Brush With Death, which explores the darker side of mentalism and stage illusion."
Yeats also had a guest magician with him by the name of Ryan. Ryan was both talented and entertaining. He really knew how to "work a room".
Door prizes were drawn before the evening ended and a winner of the 50/50 was announced with his portion being $81.00.
Congratulations to our Social Committee on a successful event and our thanks for volunteering both your time and energy on such a fun and entertaining event.
