The Seany Foundation is calling all volunteers for this summer’s Swinging for Seany Golf Tournament. Held on Monday, June 11, at the elite Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, this outdoor/indoor event requires quite a few helpful hands throughout the day. Duties include registration check-in/out, ticket sales, prize patrol, ushers, greeters, runners, spotters, etc.

Shifts will be approximately 9am-1pm and 3pm-8pm. AM volunteers will mostly be out on the green. PM volunteers will be assisting with the cocktail and dinner portion of the event.

Volunteers will need to attend a brief orientation on Thursday, June 7 at 7pm.

Seany Golf Raises Over $55K

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:

Closest to the Pin:     Lakes #3, Doug Eisold, 10’5″

Longest Drive: 1st-Zack Hannan, 2nd-Vincent Jackson, 3rd-Steve Young

1st-Christine Freedman, 2nd-Nebby Frank, 3rd-Sharon Stein

Lowest Team Score: 1st-Alan Fishman, Tod Kilgore, Eric Lambiase, Joe Matranga (58)

2nd-Mike Conger, Jeff Diltz, Todd Hansen, Rick Mirer (60)

The Seany Foundation would like to thank Kelly Sargent and KUSI for joining us in the early morning to help get the word out about the event. And of course, thank you to Ira Cammeyer, Lori Iaquinta, and Fairbanks Ranch Country Club for making this event possible!

We would also like to thank Rochelle Porter, Leslie Carter, and Robert Ricasa for catching all the excitement on camera!

And of course, a huge thanks to our Supporters:
