A screening of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” on Nov. 16 raised more than $75,000 to benefit the financial aid endowment, Chief Advancement Officer Ed Hu said.

Five hundred people, including students, families and faculty, attended the event at Warner Bros. Studios. The school has hosted “Harry Potter” screenings a week before the release of each film in theaters since 2005, when “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” was released.
