Celebration 2012 Raises Over $100K

On Saturday, October 13, over 100 guests gathered at the Del Mar Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe, CA, for The Seany Foundation’s 5th Annual Everything Is Possible Celebration. The landmark event was our best yet, raising over $100,000 for childhood cancer research and patient care programs. During the event, donors helped TSF achieve its millionth dollar raised since fundraising efforts began in 2007!

Guests enjoyed delicious cocktails, live music by Palter Ego, a silent/live auction with exciting prizes, and a gourmet meal. In recognition of her ongoing dedication to the fight against childhood cancer, Ms. Lori Iaquinta received the Seany Community Service Award.

The evening’s highlights included a special ballroom dance demo by Kurt Popp and a special announcement by co-founder Mitch Robins that TSF had raised its millionth dollar to-date. Many guests left the clubhouse that evening with their arms full of goodies. The champagne drawing winner took home a new iPad, opportunity drawing winners took home gift certificates, and winning bidders took home hot items ranging from a Hawaiian vacation to his and hers snowboards.

The Seany Foundation would like to thank the following sponsors for making the event possible: Alfonsi Railroad; Barona Resort & Casino; CustomerCentricSelling; Dr. John Smoot; Eddy Pump; Kleinfelder; Lockton Insurance; Medical Center Pharmacy; Nikolai and Maria Tankovich; Terry and Janice Tervort; Variety, the Children’s Charity of Southern California; and WJ Bradley. For sponsorship and advertising opportunities at future events, please contact Amie Forte Kuznicki at [email protected].

New Soldier In War On Cancer: The Blind Mole Rat

One of the many reasons The Seany Foundation loves the naked mole rat: New Soldier in War on Cancer.

Facts:

  • The naked mole rat is blind and hairless (muy guapo!)

  • The naked mole rat is the only mammal that does not get cancer.

  • The naked mole rat was Sean’s favorite animal (even before he knew they were cancer-free).

  • You can see them on exhibit at the World-Famous San Diego Zoo.  Look for them tucked away in the corner of the Children’s Zoo.
