MAGICAL EVENING: The fourth annual comedy and magic show hosted by Phil Ackerly — who does quite a bit of both himself — is coming up Nov. 14 at Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnyvale. Ackerly has Bay Area comedian Mickey Joseph opening the show and Phoenix-based comedy magician Michael Finney as the headliner. Ackerly started the show as a way to support South Bay Blue Star Moms and its efforts to make and ship care packages to U.S. military personnel serving overseas. Last year’s show raised $3,000, helping the group send nearly 600 care packages. “My wife and I have a son in the Air Force, and I know how much it means to our military men and women to receive a box of essentials and a few goodies from home,” Ackerly said.

“It gives girls who probably never stepped foot on a college campus the opportunity to experience what that’s like and college culture,” Whitley said. Though most activities are held at the nonprofit’s Simpson Center for Girls in downtown Oakland, the summer day camps are held each year on Bay Area college campuses. The day camp has been held at Cal State East Bay for the past three years, but was held previously at Patten and Holy Names universities in Oakland. The free program, largely funded by grants and private donations, typically accepts only 45 seventh-grade girls each year.
