On Monday, May 23, The Seany Foundation hosted the 1st Annual Swinging for Seany Golf Tournament. The partly cloudy weather did not deter our supporters from teeing off against childhood cancer in a big way! The event raised over $55,000, which will be put toward ongoing programs and research to improve the quality of life for kids and teens battling cancer.
Professional Golfer Maiya Tanaka swang her best in our Par 3 Challenge against 23 teams. “Winners” received raffle tickets, and “losers” got to use her shot in their game. Pro Skateboarder Willy Santos practiced his form out on the green alongside SD Chargers Steve Gregory and Vincent Jackson. Congrats to Vincent Jackson for placing 2nd in the Longest Drive contest. Special thanks go to Steve Gregory for auctioning off a personalized autographed football at dinner. Boxer Richard Power and NFL Player Rick Mirer also attended to show their support.
Winning bidders in the live auction took home Hawaiian Getaway vacation packages, a private dinner for 8 at Pamplemousse Grille, and a Peter Max print of Michael Jordan, autographed by Jordan. Contest winners took home golf gift certificates, a vacation package to Las Vegas, and more.
Congrats to the winner of our golf contests:
