Hairless Potter Night Raises $14K

Hairless Potter Night cast its spell last night and raised over $14,000.  The 7pm and 7:30pm special early screenings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One welcomed over 300 guests to the UltraStar Del Mar Highlands.  Thanks to the generosity of its donors, The Seany Foundation distributed 140 complimentary tickets to young cancer patients and their families from Rady Children’s Hospital, Kaiser Hospital, and Ronald McDonald House.

Fans began lining up at 5:30pm and feasted on popcorn, soda, candy, and sliders as they eagerly awaited the screening.  Favorite dressed up characters included Professor McGonagall, numerous Harry Potters, representatives from Ravenclaw and Slytherin, Malfoy, Tonks, and a whole magical family.  Costume contest winners went home happy with a Dream Dinner, Harry Potter Clue, 20 Questions Quidditch-style, and a brand-new Kindle.  Opportunity drawing winners took home two VIP tickets to the next Seany Movie Night.

Special thanks to Jess Ochoa and his team at UltraStar for helping us host this exciting event!  And once again, thank you to our kind-hearted donors for coming out to support our cause.  Photos will be posted soon!
