Three winners share $1,000 in Magic of Scout House winter raffle

Winners of the Magic of Scout House winter guard’s annual fund raising raffle to help pay travel expenses shared $1,000, with first prize winner Angele Faucher receiving $500; second prize winner Franco Spina receiving $300 and third prize winner Mike Young receiving $200. The annual fund raising event offers 500 tickets priced at $10 each.

Magic will be competing in North East Color Guard Circuit (NECGC) contests from January to April across the border in New York state, including events in Orchard Park, Lancaster, Medina, Rochester, and close to home in Kitchener/Waterloo.

The winter guard is seeking its fifth consecutive championship in the NECGC senior division. Magic is undefeated since first competing in January 2015,. This season, Magic’s contest routine is saluting Women Who Rock with a routine taking audiences on a journey through some of the most iconic music produced by women of rock.

The first words of the contest routine come from the acceptance speech when rock band Heart, headed by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013, “For us, music is the real church. It makes us all equal and perfectly human. But we’re not finished rocking, just yet!”

Magic’s design staff for 2019 includes Danielle Beckingham, Samantha Rasmussen and Jessica Beckingham. Instructional staff includes Bridget Sinden and Joshua Coit. Support staff members include Rob Summers, Linda Larabie, Dana Hughes, Traci Morrow, Lisa Bouffard and Emily Kowalczyk. Directors are Jehn Burkowski and Andrea Grant.
