Swinging for Seany Raises Over $60K

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.

Poker Night Antes Up $10K

On Saturday, March 30, over 100 guests placed their bets at Seany’s Showdown Poker Tournament and Casino Night at Co-Merge in downtown San Diego to help fight childhood cancer. The fun-filled night raised $10,000 for The Seany Foundation’s patient care programs. Casino players got lucky at craps, blackjack, and roulette. Congratulations to poker tournament winner Delana Ricasa, who took home the grand prize: a two-night stay at the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas and two tickets to see Cirque De Soliel’s Le Reve!

Everyone enjoyed the festive beats of DJ PJ, refreshing cocktails by Bartini’s and St. Petersburg Vodka, and yummy appetizers courtesy of Titled Kilt.  Lucky drawing winners took home exciting prizes, including a St. Mark’s Golf Package, a Donovan’s Steak & Chop House Gift Certificate, Pamplemousse Chocolate Caramels, and more!

Thanks to over 100 generous golfers and dinner guests, The Seany Foundation successfully raised over $63,000 at the 2nd Annual Swinging for Seany Golf Tournament at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club on Monday, June 11. Special guests in attendance included LPGA golfer Meghan Hardin, Long Drive Champ Vinny Ciurluini, and NFL pros Chris McAlister, Kassim Osgood, Tre McLeod, and Andre Reed.

Golfers began the day warming up, competing in the putting contest for their chance to win a cruise, and enjoying BBQ lunch. Then, it was an afternoon full of fun on the gorgeous 18-hole course.

Highlights included hole-side massages, Karma Tequila tastings, and exciting competitions such as Break the Glass and Hole-in-Two.
