The Dai Vernon Fund
The Dai Vernon Foundation began as the Dai Vernon Fund, established via a bequest received from the estate of the renowned Close-up Magician Dai Vernon, after his death in 1992. The original purpose was to fund a cash grant presented to the AMA’s Close-up Award winner each year. In time, as donations were received from others, the Fund’s activities expanded to include funding the education of promising young magicians,
Magic Marker
Mark Sicher was a boy who made magic his life from his early youth until the day he passed at the age of 24. As a teenager, he dressed up as a clown and performed at Birthday Parties and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, enticing and mesmerizing his audience with his magic and humor. Mark attended Tannen’s Magic Camp every summer from the age of 10, first as a Camper and then continued to work there as a counselor. He cared deeply for both the kids who attended Magic Camp and the magic program. It was the most important week of the year for him. Mark’s family and friends have instituted a scholarship at Tannen’s Magic Camp in Mark’s name to enable young magicians to enjoy some of the same experiences that were so important to Mark.
