our magic for good events were a blast!
A big thank you to everyone who helped support our project. We really couldn't have done it without you all.
We never imagined our story being featured in the Star Tribune would create such a stir! Thousands of you showed up, spending many hours at our doors, or months by your computers to snag a set of tickets. The one consistent message we heard from all of you was, "It was worth the wait.” It was truly amazing the distances you traveled, the snowstorms you drove through, or the cold you toughed it out through. A very big thank you to all the new friends we have made.
The truth is, it got bigger than we ever expected. Way bigger.
But thanks to a committed team of 36 volunteers (and some serious magic), we managed to pull it off. Night after night we ran tours, made repairs, and many times worked into the wee hours of the morning. Why? Because we truly believe in the causes we are supporting, and we desired to share the magic with you.
It became something that brought a community together.
We received dozens of thank you letters telling us how Magic for Good gave people hope, gave single fathers the ability to share some magic with their kids, grandparents special moments to share with their grandchildren or even teenagers telling us they feel inspired to do art again. We were able to rally as a community of people and donate thousands of pounds of food to our local food shelves, make blankets for the homeless and support LFSC in the work they are doing to support many local programs.
The truth is we couldn't have asked for a more amazing group of people to meet and share this magical project with. We were sad to say goodbye to it, too.
send your owl to help hogwarts in minnetonka come back this fall
We keep hearing:
“We don’t want it to go away."
"Will you be bringing Hogwarts back?"
As many of you know, this wasn't originally created for the public. Everything is made of cardboard, Styrofoam, pool noodles (and anything else the creators of this could get their hands on.) The wear and tear from having thousands of people come through has been brutal, and storing, repairs, and preserving the hard work and artwork is proving to be more difficult than planned.
So- we’re looking for owls to tell us, “yea” or “nay” before we commit to rebuilding and creating new things for next Fall.
If you would like to see the Hogwarts magic return this fall:
Send your owl on Facebook and vote to bring it back next year
