An International Sarcoma Awareness Week Event

We have been talking with Team Sarcoma and working with them to help promote International Sarcoma Awareness Week, this July 18-26.  Our official event is going to be the Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament.  More than 10,000 people around the world will be participating in various events during this special week dedicated to educating the public about sarcomas and what they can do to help find a cure.  Sean was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, which is a bone cancer.  On their website, Team Sarcoma defines sarcoma as “a cancer of the connective tissues, such as nerves, muscles, cartilage, joints, bone, or blood vessels”.  If you have visited The Seany Foundation website lately, you’ll read that “99% of all sarcomas occur in children.”  In recognition of International Sarcoma Awareness Week, we’ll be displaying more information about sarcomas at our poker tournament on July 18 as well as sporting the official “Sarcoma knows no borders” bracelets.  Show your support by signing up online for our event at www.theseanyfoundation.org/poker

Did we mention you could win a trip to the Wynn in Las Vegas and tickets to La Reve?  Oh, and the team has wrangled up some pretty stellar gift certificates from a variety of restaurants and other businesses downtown, too.  If you’re not much of a poker player but want to come play some games, well, we have something for you, too- craps, roulette, blackjack… At the end of the night, you can trade in your casino winnings for a chance to win a raffle prize.  This will certainly a chic event; if you decide to go out in Gaslamp afterwards, we’ve got some special offers for you, too.

Just another neat fact: The Poker Tournament is an official event of International Sarcoma Awareness Week.
