Just wanted to say what a great job Lolli Pop the Clown did at my daughter's party this weekend. The kids and parents loved her and she made everyone smile. It was a joy to have her there. I will be recommending Lollipop to all my friends. Please give Lollipop my sincerest thanks for making my daughter's party a great one!

I wanted to say again how much the children enjoyed your show last week. The letter was "M" for the week and "Magic/Magician" tied in beautifully. My son is still talking about the show and trying to make a bunny appear out of a balloon. The other children are still thanking me for having you there. We were amazed too. It was great.
Thank you so much.

To Whom It May Concern:
Mike Gilliland performed a magic show for our employees at a luncheon in August, 2003. This luncheon was held to kick off our annual United Way Campaign and to conduct an annual staff meeting.

Prior to his performance, Mr. Gilliland was a pleasure to work with as far as planning our program. He was more than willing to incorporate our “goals” into his show. I had heard many favorable comments about his magic shows for children, but had never seen him perform. This would be something very new to our employees, and I was not sure how they would react.

I should not have worried. They LOVED the show. Mr. Gilliland has an amazing energy, humor and love for his vocation. He was able to illustrate our theme of charitable giving by using his “illusions”. Our employees gave him their undivided attention and a standing ovation when his performance was done. Afterwards, I had so many employees either come see me or call me to tell me how much they enjoyed the show. Many of them had never seen a live magic show - it truly brought out the child in all of us.

Mr. Gilliland is a talented, resourceful, magician and showman. I would recommend him to anyone interested in entertaining and/or motivating either children or adults!

To Whom It May Concern:
The mission of the Starlight Children’s Foundation is to brighten the lives of seriously ill children, and one individual who exemplifies this ideal is Michael Gilliland. He is a one-of-a-kind magician who is able to bring smiles and laughter to kids who need cheering up. At one of our recent hospital parties at the Children’s Medical Center at MCG, Mr. Gilliland not only had the kids that were present hilariously entertained, but even the parents and nurses laughing uncontrollably at the magic act and funny phrases. During part of his performance, he called up kids to participate in his act and really got the crowd involved. Kids were amazed at his unexplainable tricks. When Michael’s around Starlight parties are always a hit.

Starlight Children’s Foundation would not be able to continue the important work they do without the help of the hundreds of individuals that contribute their talents and efforts. We are especially thankful for people such as Michael whose love of not only their work, but a desire to bring joy to ill kids, helps us carry on our duties. I would highly recommend Michael Gilliland to perform as a magician at any function because he has more than proven his expertise and proficient ability to bring enjoyable entertainment to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Dear Michael and Family,
On behalf of the Walton Rehabilitation Hospital, the Augusta West Rotary Club and everyone who attended Camp TBI, I would like to extend a gigantic thank you for your performance at the camp! For the second year in a row you and your family have outdone yourselves with the ability to capture every person's heart in the camp and making him or her feel like they were the most special camper in the room. The way you involve the campers as volunteers gave them an opportunity that they very seldom get, as many people do not think that a person with disabilities can think or perform. Last year the campers were beside themselves with excitement, and it seemed like some of the kids never put their hands down hoping that you would pick them as a volunteer!

Thank you again for your time and energy.

Camp TBI Director

Dear Prospective Client of Magician Michael Gilliland:
Michael Gilliland was one of our featured guests during Kid’s Day at the 2001 Aiken Festival of Trees. His performance was a huge hit with the kids and parents! His performance was interactive and featured live animals as well as magic. In addition to his magical performance he twisted loads of balloon animals before and after the show, and provided a huge inflatable tiger bouncer that was staffed in a safe and professional manner. We enjoyed working with Michael and his staff, and look forward to working with him again in the future. Should you decide to partner with Michael for your special event, I think you’ll be pleased with your choice.

Dear Mike,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for a wonderful performance at our St. Patrick’s Day party. You were really the hit of the party. I am always amazed at the number of parents that stay for your performances. You keep the attention of our three-year–olds and include enough humor to hook the parents, as well as everyone in between. The children are in awe of your magic and spend the remainder of the day talking about the show and trying to figure it all out. I hope that you know you brightened the day of all who attended the show. I look forward to having you perform for us in the future.
