Organizers said the November Harvest is the main fundraiser each year for the Mid-Day AMBUCS and funds a number of community projects.

Some of their highlights the past year include:

• Provided welcome packs for the Northwest Domestic Crisis Center and school supplies to children in need.

Breeze said his comedy show includes audiences participation.

"In a state of hypnosis we release our hidden talents and abilities," he said. "During the show we focus on the fun and laughter. Individuals who have seen my hypnosis show before know what a great time there is in store for them. Those who have enjoyed the unique experience are in for a real surprise!"

Breeze said anyone willing can be hypnotized.

"After the show is over, people often say they wish they had volunteered to come up on stage,"he said.  "They see how much fun it is and realize that I am not going to make them cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog. I know that may disappoint a few people, but we focus on good clean fun.”
