The Seany Foundation is not only a terrific organization, it is also one that is sorely needed since it addresses pediatric cancer, a cause which has often been overlooked. I think it's great that Seany Foundation is doing so much to help children with cancer be exactly what they should be...happy children!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly and 100% dedicated to the cause!

The Seany Foundation is a truly great organization with mission the entire staff is passionate about and behind 100%. They are working to achieve great things here in San Diego to help those with pediatric cancer.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they are truly helping those in San Diego through their projects at Rady Children's Hospital and research with UCSD.

I have always had a really fun time at the Seany Foundation fund raising events. It is a great way to meet new people. Their last two events, the poker night and the pub crawl, were two activities I would have done on my own. Therefore, I was more than happy to participate and help raise money for a good cause.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Recruiting young people that will be members for many years to come.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Run monthly events for the younger crowd who most likely can spare $40/ month for a fun event but maybe cannot donate a huge sum at once at the annual dinner.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Enjoying activities I would normally participate in while helping a good cause

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely accommodating, passionate and friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Become international in scope

Ways to make it better...

More information was given prior to the events

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting public venues to donate their services

One thing I'd also say is that...

Its off to a great start

The Casino/Poker night was fantastic! It was a lot of fun and something different for a fundraiser. It was definitely a new way to try and raise money for charity and I think they should do it again.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly and truly dedicated to the cause.

As a former non-profit event director, I was genuinely impressed with the success of the Charity Casino Night. I commend the Seany Foundation for the huge success of this event, especially given the size of the organization. The entire evening was well organized and very well executed. This was my first experience with a Seany Foundation event, but if this is any indication of how the organization delivers special events, I will be sure to attend in the future. I had a wonderful time! Thank you for an entertaining and a wonderfully enjoyable night!
