Hairless Potter Raises Over $14K

Thank you, Seany supporters! Your magic helped us raise over $14,000 at this year’s Hairless Potter Night.

Over 300 people attended Seany Movie Night at UltraStar Poway. Guests followed the red carpet to Theater 10, where they were among the first in San Diego to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. KUSI and Fox News were there to cover all the excitement.

Seany’s Sponsor-a-Kid Program provided 100 complimentary tickets to young cancer patients and their families from local hospitals.

The costume contest boasted young participants dressed as the Weasley brothers, Tonks, Muggles, Dementors, creative versions of Harry Potter, and many more. Winners took home prizes ranging from an iPod to Harry Potter Legos to official HP7 posters to free smoothies at Jamba Juice.

The winner of the evening’s drawing was announced online after the event: #661895. The winner can claim the prize by calling 858-551-5885 or emailing [email protected]

The next Seany Movie Night is scheduled for November 17. For more photos from the event, check out Seany’s Flickr Photostream.

On the eve of the global premiere, over 240 Potter fans gathered at the Ultra Star Del Mar Highlands 8 to be one of the first in San Diego to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  The Seany Foundation event raised over $8000.  Guests enjoyed complimentary concessions, and some lucky contestants walked away with some stellar prizes from our costume contest.

The three finalists for Best Overall Costume took home a Wii, an ipod, and Harry Potter Scene It!  The Hogwarts judges also awarded Most Creative, Most Spirited, Most Thrifty, and Most Authentic.
