Performance to benefit Houlton hospital project

Tickets are still available for you, your family and friends to enjoy the performance of Marko, Master Magician and Hypnotist, who will appear from 7 to 9:15 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at Houlton High School.

Tickets are $10 and are available in Houlton at York’s Bookstore, Aroostook Milling, Andy’s IGA, Shop ‘n Save, F.A. Peabody, Houlton Chamber of Commerce or the Health Services Foundation office at Houlton Regional Hospital.

Proceeds benefit the foundation’s $1 million campaign for the hospital’s nuclear medicine project.

Elizabeth Dulin of the Health Services Foundation reports this performance is one that will appeal to everyone. She particularly encourages high school students to get tickets because she believes they really would enjoy the show.

The two-part performance first will feature the magic of Marko, while the second part is all about hypnosis. Sponsors stress the hypnosis is respectful and no one will be made to appear foolish.

Seating is limited, and information is available at www.healthservicesfoundation.org or by calling the Health Services Foundation office at 521-2147.
