Ariel Morales and Rochelle Allison wowed the Cook Islands community with amazing illusions, comedy and magic tricks. The Sir Geoffrey Henry Auditorium reverberated to high pitched screams and excited yells from children and adults alike. It was the beginning of a magic week for the people of Rarotonga and Aitutaki. Over NZ$7300 was raised for the Cook Islands Prostate Cancer Foundation. Meitaki maata for the generous sponsorship from Paul Gauguin Cruises who flew the Magicians from Canada to Rarotonga. Thank you to Aunty Julie from Jetsave Travel, Bob and Emile, Edgewater Resort, Mike and Kuraono of Tamanu Beach Resort, Aitutaki, Sarah and Ewan, Air Rarotonga, Krissy and her team from Island Car and Bike Hire and Lee Harmon on behalf of CIFA for their contribution towards bringing these artists to our shores.
Just as we were awed by the magic of Ariel and Rochelle, so were they absolutely stunned by the beauty of Rarotonga and Aitutaki and the friendliness of the people. They will definitely return.
