Poker Night Antes Up $10K

On Saturday, March 30, over 100 guests placed their bets at Seany’s Showdown Poker Tournament and Casino Night at Co-Merge in downtown San Diego to help fight childhood cancer. The fun-filled night raised $10,000 for The Seany Foundation’s patient care programs. Casino players got lucky at craps, blackjack, and roulette. 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!

Everyone enjoyed the festive beats of DJ PJ, refreshing cocktails by Bartini’s and St. Petersburg Vodka, and yummy appetizers courtesy of Titled Kilt.  Lucky drawing winners took home exciting prizes, including a St. Mark’s Golf Package, a Donovan’s Steak & Chop House Gift Certificate, Pamplemousse Chocolate Caramels, and more!

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.

After a win-or-bust two first rounds and a nail-biting semi, the final table competitors kept everyone on the edge of their seats.  The final five poker players received a complimentary Seany Foundation t-shirt and one of five fabulous prizes, including luxury hotels stays and gourmet restaurant gift certificates.  Our first place winner even donated $250 back to The Foundation- talk about good sportsmanship!

The real party animals stayed for the raffle at the end of the night.  We gave away bottle service for up to 10 at Stingaree, tickets for the Padres, tickets for the Turf Club at the Del Mar Racetrack, travel packages, and a digital camera to name a few.

Yes, it seemed that everyone truly enjoyed the evening.  The casino games definitely entertained, too.  We’re looking forward to doing it again.  Thanks to all who came!  We hope to see you again soon for some more fun and games.
