For more than fifty years the Society has recognized the anniversary of the death of Harry Houdini with a special week of events to highlight the charitable work of its members throughout the year; during which magicians volunteer their talents performing in schools, veterans hospitals., senior facilities and nursing homes and for people who cannot afford to pay for this type of entertainment . “Magic Week” is when The Society of American Magicians takes its bows.” “It is no illusion that New Yorkers are some of the most generous people in the world. This week’s events are a wonderful opportunity to recognize the talented and dedicated magicians who lend a helping hand “
