Charleston, WV (Akiit.com) – Comedy Magician Dewayne Hill will set a world record on April 14, 2007 to benefit the March of Dimes Foundation at the Charleston Town Center Mall. Dewayne will perform over 100 card tricks with 60 minutes setting a world record.

Various businesses and friends will donate money per trick that Dewayne completes within the 60-minute time frame, and Dewayne will give 100% of all proceeds to the Charleston chapter of the March of Dimes. “I think the March of Dimes does a great work and I am willing to do whatever I can to help”, said Hill.

A claim has been submitted to Guinness World Record office for review and publication. At the present time there is nothing on record for such a claim and Dewayne hopes it will be listed and published after he submits all the documentation concerning the event. The Guinness World Record office sent Hill a list of rules and guidelines to be completed and submitted before they formally publish the claim, such as a witness for the entire event, an official time keeper, the event being in a public venue, etc.

Guinness World Records published a similar record in which 654 modeling balloon sculptures were completed within an hour.

The event is open to the public and will start at 2:00pm on April 14 at the Charleston Town Center Mall Center Court. Additional pledges are being accepted prior and the day of the event. For more information go to dewaynehill.com

One of the national’s few professionally touring black magicians, Comedy Magician Dewayne Hill started his professional career at the age of 17 performing illegally at comedy clubs. Dewayne now performs all over the country for corporate events, comedy clubs, and non-profit organizations.

Dewayne is currently planning another world record event for early fall of 2007 as well as a fundraising tour to benefit local and inner city charities in the cities he will be performing.
