The Membership Committee is delighted to announce "A Night at the Magic Castle"
On Wednesday, March 9, 2016, the Membership Committee of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, chaired by Michelle Michaels, Kim Encinas, and Jessica Kronstadt, will host “A Night at the Magic Castle” located at the world famous Magic Castle in the Hollywood Hills.
The Magic Castle is a private, exclusive club for magicians and connoisseurs of magic, and showplace for some of the greatest magicians in the world since its opening in 1963. The Castle itself began its life as a private Victorian home built in 1909 by banker and real estate magnate Rollin B. Lane, who at the time owned much of what is now Hollywood. Through several hardships, the Lane family moved away in the 1940’s and by the 1960’s the fate of the mansion was uncertain until the Larsen family purchased the estate. Milt Larsen was a writer at the time for NBC’s show “Truth or Consequences”. His office was on the 9th floor of a Hollywood office building that overlooked the Lane mansion. Milt’s late father, William W. Larsen Sr., was a renowned magician and had long dreamed of an elegant private club for magicians. The Lane mansion would become that club. The Magic Castle officially opened its doors a little over 50 years ago on January 2, 1963. Today, five decades later, the Castle has become the world-famous “home” to the Academy of Magical Arts, Inc. and their invited guests. On the evening of March 9th, you are invited to be one of those guests.
WLALA members and guests will not want to miss this great night of magic, fun, and laughter at this special private club. The price for this event includes hors d’oeuvres, a no host bar, access throughout the public areas of the Castle for the evening, and admission to magic shows being performed that night. As well, each attendee will be given one Magic Castle guest pass to be used on a future evening of their choice.
