We have some exceptional entertainment lined up for this year’s Annual Meeting.
Stunt Magician Wes Barker is a Vancouver based entertainer, but tours all over the world. He has performed on stages from Las Vegas, to New York, to Australia. His show features magic, comedy, and stunts. It’s like watching stand-up comedy, but adding amazing magic tricks and audience interaction. Basically it’s awesomeness from start to finish! In the past year alone Wes has appeared on several TV shows such as America’s Got Talent, Wizard Wars, MTV, and Penn & Teller: Fool Us (Which he won). Wes also has over 27 MILLION views on YouTube… but nothing is better than seeing him live!
