Jeff Quinn has been bringing magic to children in need for fifteen years. One of his most recent stops was Sanford Health right here in Bismarck.

One of his inspirations was personal, says Quinn:

Had a friend who was 11 years old, and last year he passed away from Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was a very dear friend of mine and he loved magic and I taught him magic. It made a difference in his life and I like to think maybe it's making a difference in the lives of these kids too.

What keeps him going?

The best part -- just the smiles. You know, seeing how happy they are. Making them go 'ooh and ahhh' and just having a good time.
