Captivating New Bedford Mentalist inspired by the CBS TV series
I now understand why New Bedford’s Jon Stetson, “America’s Master Mentalist,” has been invited back to the White House six times and tickled the ribs of royal families while stunning audiences around the world. He is a mind reader in a million on which the CBS television series The mentalist was based.
Stetson and I presided over the 10th Annual Fishing for a Cause Tournament and Seaside Dinner at Kilburn Mill in New Bedford to a packed house of amazed spectators. Over and over you’ve heard “How could he KNOW that?” of an enthralled crowd gathered to support the operations of the Schwartz School in Dartmouth and Meeting Street, and its life-changing programs for children with special needs.
The evening also gave us the opportunity to get a glimpse into the spirit of an oracle who left a legacy by telling people exactly what they were thinking.
In fact, it was like everyone was on the same page about how the kids at the Schwartz Center were gifted with some sort of transcendental enlightenment, imparted not by a gifted mentalist, but rather by a team of loving therapeutic and educational experts who are modern. miracle workers of the day.
For over 70 years, Schwartz School and Meeting Street have been pioneers and leaders, helping every child with special needs reach their full potential. Each year, thousands of SouthCoast families are also served, at home, by early intervention programs available to them, providing children and their families with the services needed during the early years of development and growth, as each parent wants the best for their child.
It was a pleasant and positive evening, and it was unquestionably fascinating to see Stetson knocking it out of the park, but it was equally impressive to see everyone there with one mind.
