Late Effects of Childhood Cancer Treatments

Swinging for Seany Raises Over $60K

On Monday, May 20, approximately 100 guests attended the 3rd Annual Swinging for Seany Charity Golf Tournament at the Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. KUSI got the exclusive from Co-Founder Mitch Robins in the early morning as the clouds parted and made way for a beautifully, sunny day out on some of the best greens in San Diego. Special guests included sports celebrities Kris Dielman, Chris McAlister, Tre McLeod, Jim Trotter, Jermaine Dye, and Scott Shields.

Golfers competed in fun contests for exciting prizes such as a stay at Wynn Las Vegas, and enjoyed a relaxing cocktail hour, silent and live auctions, awards dinner, and opportunity drawing. Congratulations to our Lowest Team Score winners, pictured below:

Perhaps the most touching moments of the day included speeches from Sean’s sister, Emily, and Camp Reach for the Sky camper and cancer survivor, Oscar. The Seany Foundation also proudly announced that, in 2014, the American Cancer Society will pass the torch to The Seany Foundation as the funding organization for Camp Reach for the Sky, a free summer camp for kids with cancer and their siblings. Proceeds raised at this year’s golf tournament will help send patients and their siblings to camp next year.

Special thanks to our sponsors: University Compounding Pharmacy, Eddy Pump, Alfonsi Railroad, Porsche of San Diego, Pure Flo, MLA Foundation, Terri Yurek Insurance, Barona Resort & Casino, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

Congratulations to poker tournament winner Delana Ricasa, who took home the grand prize: a two-night stay at the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas and two tickets to see Cirque De Soliel’s Le Reve!

Seany Marches to the Rhythm of Hope

In 2012, The Seany Foundation sponsored Lollipop Theater Network’s program “Rhythm of Hope”. TSF-sponsored sessions began in August 2012 and continued into January 2013. Patients gathered at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and LAC+USC Medical Center to create music together. It was the first year that TSF funded this important program, which allows kids to work together and with volunteer professional musicians or celebirty artists to create original songs. TSF is happy to report that thanks to the generosity of its donors, we will continue sponsoring music sessions for the 2013 program.
