HAGERSTOWN ? The Children's Holiday Reception Saturday at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts kept with the traditions of Jolly Old St. Nick and sprinkled sugar cookies. But it also featured a more unlikely draw ? a levitating girl. Frank Culler of Waynesboro, Pa., owner of Culler Magic, presented a 40-minute magic show complete with a disappearing and reappearing bunny. At the end of the show, he wowed the 116 people in the audience when he invited 7-year-old Claire Kohlhaas of Fredericksburg, Va., on stage and, by all appearances, caused her to rest several feet above the floor in mid-air.

Nickole Turner said the seventh annual Family Evening of Comedy & Magic at The Maryland Theatre in downtown Hagerstown was a nice way to spend a Saturday night with her family. But the entertainment wasn't the only reason the mother of four attended the event. “I like that it sponsors Safe Place,” Turner said. All proceeds from the magic show benefited Safe Place, the Washington County Child Advocacy Center - an organization at 24 N. Walnut St. that investigates more than 200 cases of child sex abuse each year.
