Seany Seeks Sponsors to Ante Up

The Seany Foundation is gearing up for Seany’s Showdown Charity Poker Tournament and Casino Night at Co-Merge in downtown San Diego on March 30. Go “all in” to help kids fighting cancer! Consider sponsoring the event. Sponsorship levels start at just $100. For more information, email Amie at [email protected].

Summer Heats Up!

This summer The Seany Foundation proudly sponsored “Seany’s Corner” at the American Cancer Society’s summer camp program known as Camp Reach for the Sky. The camp allows children with cancer the chance to be kids – an experience often taken away or put on hold by their disease – and gives them a fun summer camping adventure while under medical supervision.

“Seany’s Corner” offered a refuge for kids who preferred to participate in more low-key or less physically demanding outdoor activities, providing numerous arts and crafts projects. On July 4, Seany Co-founder Amy Robins and Board Member Amy Schneider visited camp. Here are a few photos of some of the happy campers:

Thank You, Sponsors!

Thank you to all those who sponsored a teen for this year’s Twilight Night! Thanks to you, we reached our goal of 100 tickets sponsored through Seany’s Sponsor-a-Kid (and Family) Program. Over 80 attendees from local hospitals (teens and their families) shared the theater with another 100 Seany supporters who came out for the fun! Click on the image below to read all about it.

Seany Golf Raises Over $55K

On Monday, May 23, The Seany Foundation hosted the 1st Annual Swinging for Seany Golf Tournament. The partly cloudy weather did not deter our supporters from teeing off against childhood cancer in a big way! The event raised over $55,000, which will be put toward ongoing programs and research to improve the quality of life for kids and teens battling cancer.

Professional Golfer Maiya Tanaka swang her best in our Par 3 Challenge against 23 teams. “Winners” received raffle tickets, and “losers” got to use her shot in their game. Pro Skateboarder Willy Santos practiced his form out on the green alongside SD Chargers Steve Gregory and Vincent Jackson. Congrats to Vincent Jackson for placing 2nd in the Longest Drive contest. Special thanks go to Steve Gregory for auctioning off a personalized autographed football at dinner. Boxer Richard Power and NFL Player Rick Mirer also attended to show their support.

Winning bidders in the live auction took home Hawaiian Getaway vacation packages, a private dinner for 8 at Pamplemousse Grille, and a Peter Max print of Michael Jordan, autographed by Jordan. Contest winners took home golf gift certificates, a vacation package to Las Vegas, and more.

Congrats to the winner of our golf contests:

Hairless Potter Night Raises $14K

Hairless Potter Night cast its spell last night and raised over $14,000.  The 7pm and 7:30pm special early screenings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One welcomed over 300 guests to the UltraStar Del Mar Highlands.  Thanks to the generosity of its donors, The Seany Foundation distributed 140 complimentary tickets to young cancer patients and their families from Rady Children’s Hospital, Kaiser Hospital, and Ronald McDonald House.

Fans began lining up at 5:30pm and feasted on popcorn, soda, candy, and sliders as they eagerly awaited the screening.  Favorite dressed up characters included Professor McGonagall, numerous Harry Potters, representatives from Ravenclaw and Slytherin, Malfoy, Tonks, and a whole magical family.  Costume contest winners went home happy with a Dream Dinner, Harry Potter Clue, 20 Questions Quidditch-style, and a brand-new Kindle.  Opportunity drawing winners took home two VIP tickets to the next Seany Movie Night.

Special thanks to Jess Ochoa and his team at UltraStar for helping us host this exciting event!  And once again, thank you to our kind-hearted donors for coming out to support our cause.  Photos will be posted soon!
