More than 300 attended a performance on Jan. 19 by Boston-based magicians and illusionists Joel Acevedo and Steve Kradolfer, who regaled the audience with mind-boggling card tricks and psychic illusions.

The Four-Handed Illusions performance was organized by residents Herb and Lori Cogliano to benefit the Westford Academy Trustee Scholarship fund. It raised approximately $25K, according to Lori Cogliano. Her husband is a member of the Board of Trustees.

The WA trustees present annual scholarships of approximately $100,000 to graduating high school seniors. The fund is overseen by Ryan Dunn senior executive vice president of Enterprise Bank. It is managed by an investment group at the Westford branch of the bank.

Acevedo and Kardolfer perform regularly at the Hampshire House in Boston.
