Lance Burton, Gabriella Versace entertain at Dr. Phil Aaron picnic

One hundred fifty employees get to see America's greatest Magician, his mother Hilma Burton, and M. American Woman Gabriella Versace at Magic Acres

By Joe Hare

On Saturday, September 5, 2008 there was a "Phil Aaron Medical Center" picnic held in the Freedom Community of Adair County, at the home of Dr. Phil's longtime friend and patient, Hilma Burton. Somewhere close to 150 employees, their families and friends were present to partake of the huge amount of food and fellowship that was present.

It just so happens that Ms. Burton's son is Lance Burton, the Las Vegas magician, and he was also there along with his assistant/girlfriend Gabriella Versace.

Lance performed a magic act for the kids, and the 60-80 year old kids also enjoyed it. We were also treated to a great song by Ms. Versace, who by the way, is a former Miss Pennsylvania and was recently crowned Ms. American Woman. She has also been a star headliner at the Rio Hotel is Las Vegas where her voice received great reviews.

Many thanks go out to Dr. Phil, Ms Burton, Lance and Gabriella for the hospitality that was extended to everyone. Lance and Gabrella made themselves available for photos, autographs and probably most impressive was their willingness to talk with all who wished to spend a few minutes with them.
