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!

Over $63K Raised at Swinging for Seany

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.

Other packages with winning bids included a week-long vacation in Palm Springs and state-of-the-art Callaway golf clubs.

As the evening winded down, guests finished dessert and picked up green backpacks filled with goodies for their next time out on the course.

The Seany Foundation would like to thank all its in-kind donors and sponsors for making this event possible. Special thanks to Medical Center Pharmacy, Eddy Pump, VALT, Barona Resort & Casino, and Mountain West Real Estate. And of course, a big thank you to all who attended and to our dedicated volunteers for their time and energy!
