Alex’s Team to Host 4th Annual Spirit Ball

Alex's Team Fundraiser

The Alex’s Team Foundation is proud to announce that the 4th Annual Spirit Ball will be held on December 2nd at the House of Blues in Boston, Massachusetts.

This signature event celebrates the life of Alexandra Jane Miliotis and memorializes her journey of hope and courage during her battle against Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.

Watson Adventures’ Wizard School Scavenger Hunt

This Mother's Day, follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts in search of art that echoes characters, places and enchanted objects in the famed Harry Potter books and movies. Be prepared to track down flying owls, Hagrid-like giants, centaurs and unicorns like those you’d see in the Forbidden Forest, dragons that seem straight out of the Triwizard Tournament, and eerie figures as scary as any Death Eater or Dementor.

Wizards and muggles alike can play and enjoy this hunt. The hunt is not an addition to or variation on Harry’s adventures, but instead references to the books will provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful works of art. It’s a great way to discover—or rediscover—the museum.

This hunt is designed for kids and adults to do together, but all-adult teams will be allowed to compete separately. Kids must be accompanied by an adult. Recommended for ages 10 and up.

When: 
Sunday, May 14, 2017, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
