Kids Helping Kids

A huge thanks goes out to young Noah Baird and friends for hosting the first-ever lemonade stand/snack stop to benefit The Seany Foundation!  Noah and his friends teamed up on July 11 to help us raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer.

Noah’s mom, Becky Baird, writes, “I wanted to share the most beautiful part of our Lemonade Stand Day.  (We learned a lot and next month when we do it again, we will have a REALLY BIG SEANY SIGN!!)  The kids had the best day, smiling, giggling, rocking out to music…super fun. As cars came by, one lady stopped her black SUV and two sweet 10 year old girls (roughly) quickly popped out of the car. The mom followed them across the street. As the girls told our kids what they wanted, the mom asked me what the proceeds were going to. As I told the mom and two young girls, the first girl said she lost a sibling to cancer, and the other girl said her brother had died of cancer as well.  Well, I was moved to chills and tears. I could see the mom was emotional as well, obviously.  The mom had lost her son, the sisters brother, to cancer and the two young girls were friends… It was so moving and really made us realize that we were doing something great!”

Kudos to Individual Fundraisers

Check out some great ideas Seany’s friends have come up with to help raise funds to combat pediatric cancer:

Becky Baird and Kids on Stage Productions Theatrical Workshop

On May 23, Steven Glickman, star of Nickelodeon’s hit show Big Time Rush, taught a performance workshop to over 30 kids ages 8-18.  The special class raised over $400 for The Seany Foundation.  Thank you, Becky and friends!

Kristie Schaufele and the San Diego Rock’n’Roll Marathon

A special thanks to Kristie, a mom of 3, wife, and Director of Operations for Tutorial Services, who generously sought out sponsors for her upcoming race.  Kristie is raising money online through Firstgiving.com.  Be sure to cheer her on during the world-renowned marathon on June 6.  You, too, can set up your own Fundraising page to benefit The Seany Foundation.  Just email [email protected] to ask us how!

On Friday, April 2, Best Buy’s Geek Squad made an appearance at the new Patient Care Pavilion at Rady Children’s Hospital to meet with Seany Foundation CAO Amy Robins for a walk-thru of what will soon be the Seany Teen Room in the new oncology wing.

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…

Seany Movie Night Packs Mad Fun

On Friday, March 5, Alice in Wonderland in 3D delighted guests at Seany Movie Night at UltraStar Del Mar Highlands.  The charity screening raised over $7500.  Costume contest winners took home gift certificates and authentic movie posters, and each participant earned a free Jamba Juice smoothie just for entering.  For photos of the fabulous costumes, check out our Flickr Photostream.  If you missed the excitement this time around, get ready for our Sex and the City 2 Soiree coming up in May, and of course, our huge Hairless Potter Night coming in November!
