Seany Celebrates over $90k Raised!

 

 

The San Diego Hall of Champions was abuzz with guests enjoying gourmet food by Jeffrey Strauss, live music by Kamau Kenyatta, and the fast-talking auctioning of Bill Menish.  Winning bidders walked away from the silent auction with amazing items such as travel packages to Las Vegas, an electric guitar kit, and autographed footballs.  The live auction featured a behind-the-scenes tour at the San Diego Zoo and a private dinner at Pamplemousse Grille.  Assemblywoman Lori Saldana and pro-skater Willy Santos even joined us for the fun.

After a touching video about the Foundation and its inspiration, guests demonstrated their commitment to improving the quality of life for local kids by raising their paddles to donate to help fund the Seany Teen Activity Room and Seany Rehab Swimming Pool.  Yes, a healthy portion of philanthropy does make dessert taste sweeter. Of course, the raffle prizes, caricatures, and photo booth all helped as well.

 

Thank you to all of our guests, donors, sponsors, and volunteers who helped make this event possible!

On Sunday, October 11, from 5pm to 8pm, The Seany Foundation and over 120 friends partied in style and raised over $90,000 to make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer!

September: National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

This month is as good as any to learn more about how you can help in the battle against pediatric cancer!  Here are a few tidbits of information taken from our fact page about childhood cancers:

Cancer kills more kids than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and muscular dystrophy COMBINED.

The incidence of childhood cancer increased 33% between 1975 and 2001.

Sarcomas are cancers of connective tissue (bone, muscle, fat, cartilage, some soft tissue).

There are over 50 types of pediatric sarcomas; they account for 20% of all pediatric cancers.

99% of all sarcomas occur in children.

To help make a difference in the lives of childhood battling cancer, please help us to spread the word.  Ask your friends, family, and co-workers to read our blog, subscribe to our newsletter, watch our videos, follow our tweets, attend our events, and/or donate online.  Do good; feel good.  Help us raise awareness this month and join us to celebrate your hard work on Sunday, October 11.
