Just got the great news in from pro-skater and local celeb Willy Santos that he’ll be donating a ” skate and lunch with Willy” experience for our live auction!  Not only that- he’ll also be attending Celebration 09 on October 11 with his lovely wife.  What a good guy.  Nice to know there are folks like him still out there.  If you don’t know him already, check out his sites: Willy Santos and Willy’s Workshop.

An International Sarcoma Awareness Week Event

We have been talking with Team Sarcoma and working with them to help promote International Sarcoma Awareness Week, this July 18-26.  Our official event is going to be the Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament.  More than 10,000 people around the world will be participating in various events during this special week dedicated to educating the public about sarcomas and what they can do to help find a cure.  Sean was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, which is a bone cancer.  On their website, Team Sarcoma defines sarcoma as “a cancer of the connective tissues, such as nerves, muscles, cartilage, joints, bone, or blood vessels”.  If you have visited The Seany Foundation website lately, you’ll read that “99% of all sarcomas occur in children.”  In recognition of International Sarcoma Awareness Week, we’ll be displaying more information about sarcomas at our poker tournament on July 18 as well as sporting the official “Sarcoma knows no borders” bracelets.  Show your support by signing up online for our event at www.theseanyfoundation.org/poker

Video Volunteers

So, we’ve posted on Volunteer Match and hope to get some competent and interested people to help us out with some promotional and educational videos that we’d like to release at the end of the summer.  We’re looking for self-motivated, reliable people who know enough about iMovie, Final Cut Express, or Final Cut Pro to be able to put something really nice together for us.  We’re also looking for suggestions for new ideas and content that people would like to see.  So, if you have some thoughts, send them on over to us!  Write to [email protected]
