Twilight Night Rolls Out the Red Carpet

On Thursday, November 21, The Seany Foundation rolled out the red carpet for some very special guests at Seany Movie Night.  Kids and their families from Somfab, a teen patient group at Rady Children’s Hospital’s Hematology/Oncology wing, joined Seany Foundation supporters in line to see the special early screenings of Twilight: New Moon at 7pm and 7:30pm.

Ticket holders to this special event flocked to the Ultra Star Del Mar Highlands to be among the first in San Diego to see the film and snacked on popcorn, candy, hot dogs, and soda.  CEO Mitch Robins welcomed guests and announced the raffle winners, who took home 2 VIP tickets to the next early screening.  CAO Amy Robins thanked guests as they exited down the red carpet and stopped at the Seany Table for more information about the Foundation after the screenings.

This Seany Movie Night raised $13,200.  Monies benefit various Seany Foundation projects underway to help improve the lives of kids battling cancer and to find cures for childhood cancers.

Thank you to all who attended and all who sponsored seats for the evening’s special guests from RCHSD.  Stay tuned to The Seany Foundation website for more information on our upcoming events.  The next Seany screening is scheduled for March 2010 and will include a costume contest and prizes.

On the eve of the global premiere, over 240 Potter fans gathered at the Ultra Star Del Mar Highlands 8 to be one of the first in San Diego to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  The Seany Foundation event raised over $8000.  Guests enjoyed complimentary concessions, and some lucky contestants walked away with some stellar prizes from our costume contest.

The three finalists for Best Overall Costume took home a Wii, an ipod, and Harry Potter Scene It!  The Hogwarts judges also awarded Most Creative, Most Spirited, Most Thrifty, and Most Authentic.

Check out the valiant fight against childhood cancer in these awesome photos!  (Compliments of Seany Foundation volunteer Robert Ricasa.)  Oh, and if you haven’t seen the footage yet, check out how The Seany Foundation is raising awareness for pediatric cancer here in San Diego.

Hairless Potter Crowd Speaks Out

Here’s a wonderful note we received via email from one of last night’s attendees:

I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful event. I had such a great time.  Were you one of the ladies dressed in costume from the foundation?

Until the other day, I had never heard of Seany Foundation, and I must say it is very inspiring!  Any kind of foundation created in the name of another for such a cause as your is amazing and I am honored to have heard about your cause.  The event was a great success and I am sure Sean is very proud and smiling down on all of you.

My husband was “Harry” who won the costume contest.  I am sure he will want to thank you as well, so I will be forwarding your e-mail address to him.

I would love to be added to your newsletter and look forward to helping the cause in the future!

I just thought you would be pleased to know that this event has brought awareness to as least one new person, so you guys are absolutely doing the right thing.

Once again, thank you for such a great event. It was awesome, and the movie was great!
