Celebration 2010 Raises Over $80K

Guests enter the main hall for dinner

On Sunday, October 10, over 150 guests attended the 3rd Annual Everything Is Possible Celebration held at the San Diego Hall of Champions in Balboa Park.  The jovial evening began with a cocktail reception and silent auction upstairs, where most of the action centered around a coveted Opera Gallery print.  Following the welcome reception, guests entered the main hall and enjoyed music by Ruby Summer, gourmet comfort food by Jeffrey Strauss and Pamplemousse Grille, and the warm, fuzzy feeling you get from knowing that all monies donated go directly to help kids who are battling cancer.

The evening was a celebration of Sean’s life and of his legacy.  The Seany Foundation awarded Mr. Bill Siegel with the Seany Community Service Award for his outstanding dedication to the cause.  Dr. William Roberts also attended and spoke about The Seany Foundation’s current research projects.  Celebration 2010 successfully raised over $80,000 thanks to the generosity of its sponsors, its guests, and those unable to attend, who sent in donations.
