Rotary Club Triwizard Challenge Brings Trivia Fundraising to Magical Proportions

Calling all Potter heads!! You know who you are. Get out your Felix Felicis potion
because we’re going to win the Harry Potter Triwizard Challenge that’s being held
on September 29 at the Chateaux at Fox Meadows. All Hogwarts students will be
on platform 9¾ in early September, but if you are like me and still waiting for your
Hogwarts letter to be delivered, we have a special Ministry of Magic approved
event for you! Everyone loves a great fundraiser that involves our giving
community, but a community fundraiser that also involves Harry Potter trivia is
even better!

The Rotary Club of Broomfield excels at their trivia nights but this time they are
calling on all Harry Potter fans to join them for an exciting night of wizarding
world magic, good food, drinks, costume contests, and of course a Harry Potter
Triwizard trivia challenge unlike anything we’ve seen before! Build your best
Dumbledore’s Army by gathering your Hermione Grangers, Professor
McGonagalls, brilliant Ravenclaws, loyal Hufflepuffs, brave Gryffindors, and of
course your cunning Slytherin friends and make a team stronger than any
Gryffindor Quidditch team. Use your sorting hat to come up with a team name
that’s unique to your love of wizarding world, Death Eaters is probably already
chosen.

The Ministry of Magic has invited every magical creature, muggle, witch, and
wizard alike to join in the festivities. Unlike the Triwizard Cup, which has three
challenges and lasts a whole school year, this Triwizard trivia challenge will consist
of eight rounds of eight questions, costume challenges, and bonus questions
filling the night with delight and we guarantee, not one underwater challenge.
While some might say it’s not as exciting as winning the Quidditch World Cup, we
believe that the prizes for 1st , 2nd , and 3rd place will be as wonderful one might say
as winning the Daily Prophet Grand Prize Galleon Draw.

A small $20 galleon (dollar) donation per champion will get you into the Great Hall
and enter you into the Tournament! Space is limited so make sure you sign up
with sign up genius - https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084faba623aa8-harry. Using this
magical link is the equivalent to putting your name in the Goblet of Fire and comes with its own age restrictions. Ages 14 and up can be on a team and those under 14 must have an adult on your team or grow a beard just like the Weasley Twins! Online sign-up is way faster than Owl post, especially if your owl is Errol! No need to swing by the Three Broomsticks beforehand because there will be a cash bar in the Great Hall where iPie will be served along with mouthwatering elixirs of all types. I’m hoping for some good ole Butterbeer to help my team on to victory. All the wonderful donations will go to the Broomfield Crossing Rotary to support local charities including Precious Child and the Veteran’s Museum along with other global non-profits. Hope to see you September 29 at the Chateaux from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
