“We had 108 people show up, the biggest crowd our branch has seen so far this summer. Balloon artist Mark DeVerges had the kids help him make a giant balloon grasshopper, and afterward everyone got a chance to make balloon creatures themselves or have Mark make one for them. It was tons of fun!”

“I want to express my appreciation for the wonderful performance you gave at the Murphy-Oakley Community Center during our Halloween Carnival. The children were amazed by your magical talents and entertained by your unique style and personality. I watched while you captured the attention of nearly 100 young trick-or-treaters, and overheard parents and children alike making comments like ‘He’s funny!’ or ‘How did he do that?’ This was the first time we had offered a magician’s show in connection with our fall festivities, and I was certainly pleased with the audience response, involvement, and participation. Your performance was a highlight of our event and I look forward to working with you again! Thank you for your professionalism – I would highly recommend you as a talented entertainer to anyone considering hiring you.”

     Amy Pruett: Asheville City Parks and Recreation


“Thank you Mark for making our annual membership meeting such a success. Your balloon twisting, roving magic, and balloon decorations really added to our event. We have enjoyed having you perform these past few years and hope you will be available to do so in the future”

“Mark not only impressed the Cub Scouts with his magic, but delighted them with his ability to twist balloons into a variety of figures. Mark will always have a special place in my heart after watching him relate to the boys in such a wonderful way.”

“As the Special Events Coordinator for Institutional Advancement at Brevard College, I am always on the lookout for bright young people that we can incorporate into our activities with alumni and friends. Mark’s polite manner, outgoing personality and easy sense of humor have made him a true asset to our functions. He relates well to everyone from the three-year-old child of an employee to the ninety-three year old woman who is a major donor. I would not hesitate to ask him to join us again for future events. If you are looking for a person who is friendly, hard working, prompt and will represent you well, I encourage you to become acquainted with Mark DeVerges.”

     Cheryl Walkup:  Special Events Coordinator at Brevard College


“Mark DeVerges worked with us at Joe’s Crab Shack… as a balloon twister over the summer. He interacted well with the customers and successfully entertained them. Mark was very helpful to have around especially when the kitchen got backed up and we needed extra time to get food out. The customers were busy watching him and he was so entertaining that they forgot how long their food had taken to get to their tables. We really enjoyed having him with us.”

     Pete Haaland: General Manager Joe’s Crab Shack


“Mark made remarkable balloon creations for my children at a professional baseball game…he is an impressive young man of varied interests and skills. He is active in his community and understands the importance of individual character and commitment.”
