Shezam Podcast - by Kayla Drescher

Shezam was born out of Kayla’s extensive frustration with how women in magic - and other industries - are treated. With co-creator Carisa Hendrix, Shezam has ignited the conversations that aren't often spoken about on such a large platform.

NY Yankees Donate to Honor Magician

On the third day of HOPE Week in 2019,  the New York Yankees Foundation honored Olmedo Rentería, better known as "The Great Olmedini," with a $10,000 check to the MEF. Olmendo has been performing magic tricks on the NYC subway for 30 years. Though a stroke robbed him of his vision 10 years ago, he still ventures out to perform for wide-eyed tourists and commuting New Yorkers alike.

The MEF is grateful to the New York Yankees Foundation for this generous gift honoring one of New York's finest citizens.
