A Night of Magical Disbelief – Winter Solstice Banquet 2018

Published by Minnesota Atheists on

Join us for a magical night! This year’s Winter Solstice Banquet will be on December 15th at the Embassy Suites in Brooklyn Center. Our theme highlights the performing art of magicians. The featured entertainment will be mentalist David Gamut.


5:00 p.m. – Social hour with a cash bar & magic tricks
6:00 p.m. – Dinner & Awards Program
7:00 p.m. – Mentalist David Gamut Performs

David Gamut travels the world performing at speaking events where he uses his skills as a mentalist to entertain as well as educate the audience on how to have empathy for one another, and how to have productive conversations with people we disagree with. We had the pleasure of interviewing him on Atheists Talk. Listen to the interview

Please consider bringing: $5 gift cards (Target, Cub Foods, Subway, Caribou), clothing (slippers, sneakers, seasonal clothing for teens – particular larger sizes), or bedding (twin sheet sets, comforters, pillows).
