Sex and the City 2 Benefits Pediatric Cancer Research

On Wednesday, May 26, over 200 fabulously-dressed ladies (and a few lucky gents) attended The Seany Foundation’s Ladies Night Out at the Movies at Ultra Star Del Mar Highlands.  Guests warmed up at the pre-show soiree with a complimentary glass of wine and a wonderful spread generously donated by Rype Catering.  The pre-show raffles sent home lucky winners with VIP tickets to our next movie night, $100 in La Jolla restaurant certificates, and an exclusive Jet-Rhys salon package.  Glamour Awards were also distributed to the most stylish ladies of the evening.  Thanks to our generous guests in attendance, Ladies’ Night Out raised over $8000 for The Seany Foundation’s pediatric cancer research funds and local patients care projects.

GOOD SPORTS: A special thanks to our Chairman of the Board, Bill “Charlotte” Siegel, and survivor Chris Ramirez, our very own “Mr. Big”.  Check out more photos of our lovely guests at Seany’s Flickr Photostream.

Seany’s Poker Tournament Rules and Regulations

Seat assignments: Each player will randomly draw a table/seat card from the Tournament Director prior to the tournament.

Each Player will start with $10,000 in chips (10, 6, 6).  (10 White =$1000), (6 Red =$3000), (6 Black =$6000).

The blinds increase every 20 minutes or as deemed by the Tournament Director.  This is a flexible blind and time table depending on the action and the time restraints of the tournament.

Re-buys are available for the first hour of the Tournament.  After that, Add-ons, which you do not need to be out of chips to purchase, will be available.  If a player does go out at the end of the hand with the last Re-buy, he/she will be able to do both options and have double the amount of chips at that time.

Best of luck to you all!
