You’re a Fundraiser, Harry!

I mentioned the Harry Potter fundraiser previously. How time flies! Ready or not, photo spam time. \( ̄▽ ̄)/

PREP
All of the work below was done by teammates.

Jill’s the main organizer and she went HAM. Newspapers, radio stations, posters, you name it. I helped with posters and getting more students involved in the event.

How can you resist?

You can find the brief commercial here. We winged most of it. I was super nervous.

 

THE DAY OF
A handful of classmates and I went to the event after class, which was incredibly close to the event’s start time. We were surprised by the full house!

All abroad!! The Harry Potter soundtrack played as you walked in the room.

Participants really went out on the decor. (We had a contest for best decorated table).

My lab mates standing next to Jill’s cutouts! They graciously volunteered their time to help with the event (left to right: MC and trivia judge).

 

Several friends/colleagues pressured dressing up for the event, and at the last minute I decided to dress up as Cho Chang because she’s Asian I like birds.

SHO SHANG

The MVP of the winning team only missed one question! We kept checking their table to see if they were somehow checking. It turns out the MVP grew up listening to the audio tapes of all the books, and he said he’s got them all memorized. Who knew audio books would be so effective?

In the end, managed to raise over $3,500 for the American Cancer Society through the Harry Potter fundraiser. #magic #haveamagicalweek #I’mReallyaSlytherin
