Hairless Potter Night Raises $14K

Hairless Potter Night cast its spell last night and raised over $14,000.  The 7pm and 7:30pm special early screenings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One welcomed over 300 guests to the UltraStar Del Mar Highlands.  Thanks to the generosity of its donors, The Seany Foundation distributed 140 complimentary tickets to young cancer patients and their families from Rady Children’s Hospital, Kaiser Hospital, and Ronald McDonald House.

Fans began lining up at 5:30pm and feasted on popcorn, soda, candy, and sliders as they eagerly awaited the screening.  Favorite dressed up characters included Professor McGonagall, numerous Harry Potters, representatives from Ravenclaw and Slytherin, Malfoy, Tonks, and a whole magical family.  Costume contest winners went home happy with a Dream Dinner, Harry Potter Clue, 20 Questions Quidditch-style, and a brand-new Kindle.  Opportunity drawing winners took home two VIP tickets to the next Seany Movie Night.

Special thanks to Jess Ochoa and his team at UltraStar for helping us host this exciting event!  And once again, thank you to our kind-hearted donors for coming out to support our cause.  Photos will be posted soon!

Seany Releases New Ewing’s Sarcoma PSA

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and The Seany Foundation is striving to bring some very much needed attention to some little known diseases.  As research money comes trickling down the cancer heirarchy, these rarer pediatric cancers are often overlooked.  This gives us all the more reason to make some noise about them.  Find out a little bit more about Ewing’s sarcoma, the type of bone cancer that Sean battled for nearly 7 years:

Our new favorite geeks were scouting out the location to plan exactly what kind of goodies they’ll be donating for use in the activity center.  Conversations included thoughts on Mac vs. PC, iPod stations, and speaker and flat screen TV options.  With the Seany Teen Room scheduled to open on time this summer, both The Seany Foundation and our friends at Best Buy are very excited about all the possibilities.

More updates on the progress of the teen room coming soon…

HOG Annual Toy Drive and More Holiday Fun

Yes, despite the rain, over 100 big-hearted bikers from Biggs Harley Davidson North County and San Diego Chapters showed up on Saturday, Dec. 12 at Rady Children’s Hospital to deliver toys collected in their annual toy drive for the kids.  H1N1 precautions kept the kids from grabbing the toys in person this year, but our HOG friends made sure to leave tons of wonderful gifts for them to enjoy this holiday season!

After emptying their “sleds”, these holiday do-gooders went to Applebee’s to fill up their tummies at Dining to Donate, an event to benefit The Seany Foundation.  Our congratulations to our HOG friends for a job very well done!  You can check out some more snapshots of the Toy Drive at the Seany Flickr Photostream.
