COGNiTiON presents a Showcase of Inspiration!
Be sure to save the date—9/17/17—for this exciting event headlining the class act of BEN WHITING, “Magic Man!”
Popular for bringing “a different kind of magic,” Whiting recently appeared on the cover of the Aug 21-27 Northern Express and was featured as one of “20 Fascinating People” for 2017. He is consistently known for being charismatic, mesmerizing, and astonishing his audiences, which is sure to be true of his upcoming appearance in the Showcase of Inspiration.
The event will take place at the Blue Bridge Event Center in Interlochen (formerly Frog Pond Village). Under new ownership, Blue Bridge has been given a fresh look and is a desirable “showcase” of its own kind.
Another anticipated act in the Showcase is the rich musical talents of Bogar and Elizabeth Guzman. One of Benzie County’s diamonds-in-the-rough, the duo will entertain with a rich variety of instruments and sweet sounds. Several other surprise guests will also perform, making this a unique and inspiring afternoon, much like the atmosphere experienced at COGNiTiON.
The new Science and Discovery Center, COGNiTiON, opened in downtown Beulah just last January, and is able to boast over 75 member families (from as far away as North Carolina and Canada) and over 2100 visitors to date. The Showcase of Inspiration is a major fund-raising endeavor of this 501 (c)(3) nonprofit. All proceeds will go toward the operation and growth of the center, helping to keep its hands-on exploration and enrichment available year round for “kids of all ages.” Join the grand and entertaining celebration of the vision and accomplishments of COGNiTiON so far, and help them raise funds toward an exciting future!
The Showcase will take place on Sunday, September 17 from 3:00-6:00pm. Tickets are $20/adult, $15/student, in advance (through 9/15), and $25/adult, $20/student at the door. Tickets may be purchased at COGNiTiON or online through Eventbrite, Facebook, or the website DiscoverCognition.org. While visits to COGNiTiON are for “kids of all ages” please note that this event has been planned for the more mature end of the spectrum, at your discretion. There will be a cash bar available, tasty sweets, and of course room to dance! COGNiTiON offers many thanks to their special friends and sponsors Precision Collision & Auto Glass of Frankfort, for the exciting magic show, and Blue Bridge Event Center for the provision of the wonderful accommodations.
