Beginning the summer with a pool party was an enjoyable way to change seasons.
“America’s Got Talent” magician Murray SawChuck (“Tropicana) hosted the party to honor beautiful Chloe Crawford (“Fantasy,” Luxor).
Chloe was chosen to appear on Strip LV Magazine’s June cover.
Along with the cover, her additional photograph spread runs across six pages inside the magazine.
The pool party ran from 1 – 6 p.m. at the Tropicana Hotel’s Bagatella beach.
For five hours, more than 120 celebrities, friends and media joined the festivities.
The guests included magician/ singer Ben Stone, “American Idol” singer Jasmine Trias, singer Paul Shortino (Rough Cutt, Quite Riot, “Rock of Ages,” Las Vegas Hotel), “America’s Got Talent” master illusionist Jarrett Parker (“Jarrett & Raja”), aerialist Sonya Sonnenberg (“Fantasy”), producer Tim Molyneux (“Bite,” Stratosphere), the world’s fastest juggler Nino Frediani and many others.
There is so much to celebrate.
Chloe has attracted attention since she was featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.
She guest starred in USA’s Top Gear, Hallmark television’s Home & Family and the Marie Osmond show.
Of course, there are her evening performances as featured dancer in “Fantasy”, at the Luxor and afternoons as stage assistant in Murray SawChuck’s magic show.
After being the featured dancer for 6 months in “Fantasy”, she signed to extend her contract for another 6 months.
During Chloe’s interview for her magazine cover article, she explained, “Murray and I are lucky to be living and working in Vegas together now.
It’s awesome that he has his show at the Tropicana and mine is just across the street at the Luxor.
It is so much fun to be working together.
The fact that we have worked together so long shows on stage.
We are comfortable with each other; we do not have to think about it anymore.
I think I am the only person to move to Vegas for a man and not for work.”
Backstage before the show, Chloe and Murray discuss the props and techniques.
There are two things on Chloe’s “wish list,” to headline her own show on the Las Vegas strip and to become a centerfold in Playboy Magazine.
Murray’s popular 4 p.m. show gives everyone a chance to see him, have dinner and attend an evening show.
He is scheduled to appear in the “Masters of illusion” television program to be filmed in July. Maybe he will be making tigers disappear instead of Chloe. It will be something “BIG”.
Murray and Chloe each have their own careers.
Chloe and Murray are going to Disneyland for their one-year wedding anniversary, July 20.
