Watch Darcy's segment on CTV Morning Live.
From CBC News Manitoba:
Illusionist Darcy Oake will wow fans at two shows in Winnipeg in June, and 100 per cent of the proceeds will go toward the construction of a new addiction treatment centre he says his hometown sorely needs.
Oake skyrocketed to fame three years ago after appearing on Britain's Got Talent, and now he's turning his attention toward an issue that is close to his heart.
Oake's brother Bruce Oake died after an overdose six years ago. The family started the Bruce Oake Foundation to raises awareness of addiction issues and fundraise for a long-term treatment centre like the one Bruce attended in Alberta.
