Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling hosted a special charity ball last night in Scotland to benefit the MS Society Scotland. The Sunday Mail reports that this gala ball, which was held at the Harburn House, West Lothian, included music and dance, and an auction for a special prize donated by Jo. This prize was “the chance to be immortalised as a wizard or witch in a portrait at the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Florida.” Notables such as author Ian Rankin, actress Joely Richardson and singer Charlotte Church were among those attending this event which raised £320,436 for Multiple Sclerosis. Readers will recall that J.K. Rowling has long been involved in the battle against MS, having lost her mother to the disease, and now serves as a Patron of MS Society Scotland.
