Wands and Wizardry Produce Magical Media Mentions for College
Chestnut Hill College and the Chestnut Hill Business Association partnered for the first annual Harry Potter Weekend and 2nd Annual Brotherly Love Cup Quidditch tournament that took place October 14, 15, and 16. A magically successful weekend, Chestnut Hill College's team Slytherin took home the Cup with a 110-40 victory over Penn State in the finals. With more than 2,500 visitors to campus on Saturday and witches and wizards young and old seen on the Avenue, it was a bewitching weekend for all. See a promo video for the Brotherly Love Cup here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TX72P0nRueo&hd=1

With the remarkable media coverage of the weekend, we would like to share with you the many press features and mentions the Quidditch tournament and the Harry Potter weekend received in the local media. Enjoy!
