Thank You, Sponsors!

Thank you to all those who sponsored a teen for this year’s Twilight Night! Thanks to you, we reached our goal of 100 tickets sponsored through Seany’s Sponsor-a-Kid (and Family) Program. Over 80 attendees from local hospitals (teens and their families) shared the theater with another 100 Seany supporters who came out for the fun! Click on the image below to read all about it.

SOMBFAB Awards Guardian Angels

Yesterday, Amy Robins, Co-founder of The Seany Foundation, was pleasantly surprised to be presented with the “Guardian Angels Award” from the young cancer patient and siblings’ support group Some of My Best Friends Are Bald.

This past year, The Seany Foundation invited SOMBFAB members to walk the red carpet at Seany Movie Nights, free-of-charge. Several of its members also enjoy using The Seany Room in the oncology wing of Rady Children’s Hospital, a space dedicated to teens and young adults.

The Seany Foundation is honored to receive the Guardian Angels Award and would also like to wish SOMBFAB a very happy 21st anniversary! Kudos to fellow 2011 Guardian Angel Award recipients Aldo Sabino, Carmen Delgadillo from Friends of Scott, and Gary Schneider.

Seany Teen Room Debuts!

On Sunday, October 10, patients at Rady Children’s Hospital officially moved into their new facilities at the Acute Care Pavilion.  Previously, members of Team Seany visited the new building to view the Seany Teen Room.  Here are a few photos from the Teen Room, still in progress.  Electronics, decorations, and the finishing touches are scheduled to take place this coming month.  The Seany Teen Room will be home to a variety of activities, including music and art therapy, movie nights, and game nights.

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.

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…
