    ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — For the eighth consecutive year, local magician and illusionist Wes Iseli brought some holiday magic to the wings of Carilion Children’s Hospital on Friday afternoon.

    Iseli performs at venues of all sizes across the East Coast. However, Iseli not only brings joy to his audience through his miraculous escape tricks and live shows, but he also raises money and awareness for worthy causes through his monthly Magic of Giving charity projects.

    “If everybody gave back just a little bit more, imagine how great the world would be.”

    On Friday afternoon, Iseli continued his December project for Magic of Giving by going from room to room at Carilion Children’s Hospital and performing for young patients.

    “I give them a magic kit after my room visits, and they tell me that…in a dark time there in the hospital, it opened them up to do magic themselves,” says Iseli.

    Christopher Nichols, whose son came into Carilion Children’s Hospital on Christmas Day for emergency surgery, says that Iseli and the hospital’s other holiday surprises have helped his son get through a scary and difficult time.

    “When you have a child in the hospital during the holidays, it just seems worse for some reason,” says Iseli. “To see them smile no matter what they are going through means the world to me.”
