Hairless Potter on CW6 Tonight!

Just got the good news that we’re going to be smiling on CW6’s coverage of Hairless Potter Night tonight at 10pm.  We love our new PR team!  (Way to go Sandra and Jen.)  Be sure to tune in for the excitement!

Hairless Potter Night TONIGHT

Yes!  It’s finally here!  The most highly anticipated cinematic evening this summer has arrived!  The Seany Foundation and all of its muggle friends will gather at the UltraStar Del Mar Highlands 8 Hogwart’s branch late this afternoon to begin the festivities.  Doors will open for ticketholders at 6:30pm.  The costume contest will begin at 7pm, and a Wii will be awarded to Best Overall Costume.  And finally, Harry Potter will make his grand debut at 7:30pm sharp!  Guests will receive free Foundation tshirts, wallets, and chapsticks on their way home after all the excitement!  We’re just finishing up some final touches to our flyers and posters here at the office and then will be off to adorn our own Potter costumes!  See you there!

An International Sarcoma Awareness Week Event

We have been talking with Team Sarcoma and working with them to help promote International Sarcoma Awareness Week, this July 18-26.  Our official event is going to be the Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament.  More than 10,000 people around the world will be participating in various events during this special week dedicated to educating the public about sarcomas and what they can do to help find a cure.  Sean was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, which is a bone cancer.  On their website, Team Sarcoma defines sarcoma as “a cancer of the connective tissues, such as nerves, muscles, cartilage, joints, bone, or blood vessels”.  If you have visited The Seany Foundation website lately, you’ll read that “99% of all sarcomas occur in children.”  In recognition of International Sarcoma Awareness Week, we’ll be displaying more information about sarcomas at our poker tournament on July 18 as well as sporting the official “Sarcoma knows no borders” bracelets.  Show your support by signing up online for our event at www.theseanyfoundation.org/poker

Summer Blockbuster SOLD OUT!

Our Hairless Potter Night has officially sold out!  If you are among the lucky ones who got tickets, then plan to be at the cinema at 6:30pm sharp to get your concessions and some good seats.  We’ll be doing the costume contest before the movie starts.  Prizes include a Wii and ipods.  Yes, we are that cool.  And for those of you who won’t be making it out this time, please stay tuned for more fun and exciting movie screenings.  Oh, and be sure to check out our poker tournament scheduled for July 18: www.theseanyfoundation.org/poker

Video Volunteers

So, we’ve posted on Volunteer Match and hope to get some competent and interested people to help us out with some promotional and educational videos that we’d like to release at the end of the summer.  We’re looking for self-motivated, reliable people who know enough about iMovie, Final Cut Express, or Final Cut Pro to be able to put something really nice together for us.  We’re also looking for suggestions for new ideas and content that people would like to see.  So, if you have some thoughts, send them on over to us!  Write to [email protected]

Seany’s Summer Blockbuster Screening Update

We’re off to a great start!  The tickets went on sale just a few days ago, and we have already sold 94 admissions.  Make sure that if you want to be a part of the fun, you write to [email protected] or contact a Seany Team member near you to purchase your tickets ahead of time.  Our costumes came in the mail today, so the Seany Team will be dressed to impress.  We should also let you know that the screening will be at the Ultra Star Del Mar Highlands (not to be confused with the Flower Hill location).  Also, we recommend arriving at 6:30pm when we open the doors so that you have plenty of time to get your concessions and still grab a good seat in the theater.

International Sarcoma Awareness Week July 18-26

The Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, July 18 from 6:30pm-11pm.  We’re encouraging people to register online to ensure that we can acommodate everyone who wants to play; seating is limited.  There will be complimentary food, and drinks will be available for purchase.  Our Director of Special Events Mari M. Pullen is handling this summertime happening with some special help from our new Community Relations team member Ben C. Weinrib.

Be sure to check out The Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament page for registration information.

Did we mention you could win a trip to the Wynn in Las Vegas and tickets to La Reve?  Oh, and the team has wrangled up some pretty stellar gift certificates from a variety of restaurants and other businesses downtown, too.  If you’re not much of a poker player but want to come play some games, well, we have something for you, too- craps, roulette, blackjack… At the end of the night, you can trade in your casino winnings for a chance to win a raffle prize.  This will certainly a chic event; if you decide to go out in Gaslamp afterwards, we’ve got some special offers for you, too.

Just another neat fact: The Poker Tournament is an official event of International Sarcoma Awareness Week.

Hairless Potter lives!

Did you know…?

Sean’s favorite books were the Harry Potter series?  He would even joke that he was “Hairless Potter”!  (He would cast spells on automatic sliding doors at the hospital to get them to open for him.)

Sean’s one and only job was working at the cinema Ultra Star Del Mar Highlands.  He would go there on his scooter to see movies all the time.  At one point, Jess, the manager, offered him a job.  The theater needed the help taking tickets, and Sean was there all the time anyway.  Free movies?!  Sean was in.  We have his first paycheck hanging on the wall at the office.  And thus began the beautiful friendship that has now blossomed into summertime fun with The Seany Foundation and UltraStar Del Mar.

We now have our Summer Blockbuster event tickets -compliments of our good friends at North Shore Printery.  So, if you’re interested in attending the party, just drop us a line at [email protected]
