From the March 24th article "Magician Ryan Joyce raising money for Children’s Wish Foundation in Barrie" by Chris Simon in the Barrie Advance:
Ryan Joyce is poised to walk through walls — and other objects — for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.

The well-known Canadian magician brings his family-friendly magic and mentalism act to St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School in Barrie April 13. This benefit show will raise money for the foundation’s Ontario chapter.

“The foundation helps bring smiles to many boys and girls with life-threatening illnesses, by making their greatest wish come true,” show spokesperson Patricia Ferreira said.

This event includes a performance by Spring Action Trampoline Show acrobats.

Magic is in the air and the fingers of James Harrison.

The Barrie magician has taken pick-pocketing to new heights over the past several years and he will be performing at two shows this weekend at the Mady Centre for the Performing Arts, including one the family and especially for kids.

"I don't ever make fun of the kids, but parents are fair game," he said. "And the kids love that."
