Philanthropy Friday Behind the Scenes with A Kid Again

This Behind the Scenes Spotlight features non-profit organization A Kid Again. You can read my feature on this charity at Columbus Underground.

A Kid Again annually welcomes their children, as well as the public, to a remarkable show called, Miracles and Magic. Miracle and Magic is produced by the incredibly talented, Jon Petz. Jon has entertained audiences all over the world, and annually he assembles some of the world greatest magicians and entertainers in Columbus to amaze A Kid Again kids.

This year, just before ending his chemotherapy, six-year-old, Ethan appeared at the end of the show. The scene is called “Snow”, because Jon magically produces snow right on the stage of the Capitol Theater.

As it began to snow, Ethan lay down in the middle of the stage and made a snow angel. The symbolism of this youngster and his battle with Leukemia and how angelic he was touched the entire audience and everyone erupted in applause. It was just one of hundreds incredibly moving moments shared with the children.
