Celebration 2010 Raises Over $80K

Guests enter the main hall for dinner

On Sunday, October 10, over 150 guests attended the 3rd Annual Everything Is Possible Celebration held at the San Diego Hall of Champions in Balboa Park.  The jovial evening began with a cocktail reception and silent auction upstairs, where most of the action centered around a coveted Opera Gallery print.  Following the welcome reception, guests entered the main hall and enjoyed music by Ruby Summer, gourmet comfort food by Jeffrey Strauss and Pamplemousse Grille, and the warm, fuzzy feeling you get from knowing that all monies donated go directly to help kids who are battling cancer.

The evening was a celebration of Sean’s life and of his legacy.  The Seany Foundation awarded Mr. Bill Siegel with the Seany Community Service Award for his outstanding dedication to the cause.  Dr. William Roberts also attended and spoke about The Seany Foundation’s current research projects.  Celebration 2010 successfully raised over $80,000 thanks to the generosity of its sponsors, its guests, and those unable to attend, who sent in donations.

Opening Day at the Races

Team Seany is dressing up for opening day at the races today at the Del Mar Racetrack.  We’re trying to learn the ropes of horse racing now that The Seany Foundation has some horses of its own that will soon be running. We’ll also be sure to see one of our directors and top-givers, Jeffrey Strauss (a big race aficionado), at the track.

At last year’s Celebration gala at Moores UCSD Cancer Center, Dyan and Barry Abrams announced a surprise donation to The Seany Foundation.  Mr. Abrams originally met Mitch Robins at the cementery on one of the many afternoons that Mitch spends visiting a small, personal garden alongside the stone etched with Sean’s name.  After having visited the website and having been touched by Sean’s story and Sean’s own words on his CarePages, Mr. Abrams decided to make a contribution that would continue to give back over the years.

The Abrams bought two new thoroughbred horses, named them “Seany’s Story” and “Seany’s Courage”, and promised 25% of all winnings to The Seany Foundation.  Their generosity moved the crowd and was certainly a wonderful and welcome surprise for the Foundation.

Thank you, Dyan and Barry! We hope you enjoy this racing season!  We’ll look forward to seeing you at the track.
