Magic Makers Bash

After two years of staying home to protect our most vulnerable community members, we are thrilled to be able to safely gather again with our Creative Action family! Magic Makers Bash is an opportunity to celebrate our loyal community partners, as well as raise the funds to provide socially relevant, arts-based programming to those who might otherwise lack access to social and emotional development opportunities.


Join us for an enchanting and unforgettable evening as we celebrate the magical power of the arts!

Enjoy immersive entertainment, a seated dinner and live auction, and an exciting performance by renowned illusionist, mentalist and entertainer Riccardo Berdini. 

This experience will transport attendees to a magical, immersive experience, unlike any other in Austin. Proceeds from the evening are used to support the 20,000 students of all ages we serve in our community.

Your health and safety and that of our staff is a priority, therefore, we will follow the CDC Covid recommendations in place at the time of the gala.
