CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Janesville native Eric Extrodinaire dazzled a crowd Saturday afternoon at Overman Park.

Magic show was open to the public and was put on by Big Brothers Big Sisters--whose slogan is "little moments create big magic".

"People wonder what the big magic is with mentoring and studies have showN that children who are mentored through Big Brothers Big Sister programs are more likely to have higher academic performance.  They have better relationships with their family and peers and they're more likely to go on to college and become more involved in their communities," Big Brothers Big Sisters Executive Director Maria Benham said.

The Black Hawk and Bremer County Big Brothers Big Sisters connects about 400 kids with adult mentors.
