Well, The Seany Foundation was pleasantly surprised to see over 100 new bright and happy faces walk through the doors of the Solstice Ballroom at Hotel Solamar on Saturday night for the First Annual Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament, which raised over $6000.

Thanks to our volunteer photographer, Terrani Nevarez, we have plenty of photos to boast of the evening’s exciting festivities.  Check out the Seany Foundation’s Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament Poker photos on Flickr.  You might be in there!

After a win-or-bust two first rounds and a nail-biting semi, the final table competitors kept everyone on the edge of their seats.  The final five poker players received a complimentary Seany Foundation t-shirt and one of five fabulous prizes, including luxury hotels stays and gourmet restaurant gift certificates.  Our first place winner even donated $250 back to The Foundation- talk about good sportsmanship!

The real party animals stayed for the raffle at the end of the night.  We gave away bottle service for up to 10 at Stingaree, tickets for the Padres, tickets for the Turf Club at the Del Mar Racetrack, travel packages, and a digital camera to name a few.

Yes, it seemed that everyone truly enjoyed the evening.  The casino games definitely entertained, too.  We’re looking forward to doing it again.  Thanks to all who came!  We hope to see you again soon for some more fun and games.
