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!

Twilight Night Rolls Out the Red Carpet

On Thursday, November 21, The Seany Foundation rolled out the red carpet for some very special guests at Seany Movie Night.  Kids and their families from Somfab, a teen patient group at Rady Children’s Hospital’s Hematology/Oncology wing, joined Seany Foundation supporters in line to see the special early screenings of Twilight: New Moon at 7pm and 7:30pm.

Ticket holders to this special event flocked to the Ultra Star Del Mar Highlands to be among the first in San Diego to see the film and snacked on popcorn, candy, hot dogs, and soda.  CEO Mitch Robins welcomed guests and announced the raffle winners, who took home 2 VIP tickets to the next early screening.  CAO Amy Robins thanked guests as they exited down the red carpet and stopped at the Seany Table for more information about the Foundation after the screenings.

This Seany Movie Night raised $13,200.  Monies benefit various Seany Foundation projects underway to help improve the lives of kids battling cancer and to find cures for childhood cancers.

Thank you to all who attended and all who sponsored seats for the evening’s special guests from RCHSD.  Stay tuned to The Seany Foundation website for more information on our upcoming events.  The next Seany screening is scheduled for March 2010 and will include a costume contest and prizes.
