Day 1: This month, we are going gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Will you join us?
Day 1: Transformation Tuesday. Hannah’s 1 year transformation is so inspiring! Camp makes a difference!
We are so excited to once again, get the word out about Childhood Cancer Awareness. This year, we will be talking with survivors, siblings, parents, and friends about their personal experiences with pediatric cancer. We will be posting on social media as well as right here, so check back with us in September to learn more.
Help spread the word about The Seany Foundation’s first-ever 5k! Proceeds from this fun run on March 1 will benefit Seany’s Camp Reach for the Sky, a free summer camp for kids with cancer and their siblings. We are so excited about the 5K and how we can join forces to raise funds and awareness for Camp! We hope you’ll join us for pizza, as we discuss how you can become an Admiral for Camp and help make happy campers out of local kids affected by cancer. REGISTER HERE
On Monday, May 20, approximately 100 guests attended the 3rd Annual Swinging for Seany Charity Golf Tournament at the Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. KUSI got the exclusive from Co-Founder Mitch Robins in the early morning as the clouds parted and made way for a beautifully, sunny day out on some of the best greens in San Diego. Special guests included sports celebrities Kris Dielman, Chris McAlister, Tre McLeod, Jim Trotter, Jermaine Dye, and Scott Shields.
Golfers competed in fun contests for exciting prizes such as a stay at Wynn Las Vegas, and enjoyed a relaxing cocktail hour, silent and live auctions, awards dinner, and opportunity drawing. Congratulations to our Lowest Team Score winners, pictured below:
Perhaps the most touching moments of the day included speeches from Sean’s sister, Emily, and Camp Reach for the Sky camper and cancer survivor, Oscar. The Seany Foundation also proudly announced that, in 2014, the American Cancer Society will pass the torch to The Seany Foundation as the funding organization for Camp Reach for the Sky, a free summer camp for kids with cancer and their siblings. Proceeds raised at this year’s golf tournament will help send patients and their siblings to camp next year.
Special thanks to our sponsors: University Compounding Pharmacy, Eddy Pump, Alfonsi Railroad, Porsche of San Diego, Pure Flo, MLA Foundation, Terri Yurek Insurance, Barona Resort & Casino, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

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.
