The Magicians Foundation, Inc.The International Brotherhood of Magicians

SHORT HISTORY

          The Magicians Foundation Incorporated began when David Lim, a successful businessman, who was also very much interested in the Art of Magic met Juancho Lunaria (Wanlu), an amateur magician then, Danny Luchavez  and Domenico Tapiador (Mimo), both well-accomplished professional magicians.  One day they decided to form a group where magicians in the Philippines could be united for the welfare and improvement of their art.
