I have had the honor and pleasure of volunteering for the Seany Foundation for the last few years thanks to my friend Amie Forte who introduced me to Mitch and the family when I moved out to California from Arizona almost 2 yrs ago. This family based team is one of a kind. I typically volunteer for various organizations on a weekly basis so my experience is broad however this particular team brings a level of compassion, love and professionalism that is extraordinary. I always look forward to each opportunity that I am offered.

Keep up the great work changing and transforming the lives that are directly or indirectly impacted by dis-ease.

Seany Shines On!!!!

Besides being a donor, I've had the opportunity to volunteer a couple of times at Seany Foundation auctions. The generosity of the donors, the commitment of the foundation members and the tangible good it does in helping fund pediatric cancer research made my volunteer experiences at these auctions truly memorable.

I've not only volunteered, I've donated to The Seany Foundation from the very first days of this organization. I was close to Sean Robins, the young man for whom this Foundation was named and the inspiration for it's existence. The Seany Foundation supports the noble goal of eliminating pediatric cancers while, at the same time, seeking to provide pediatric cancer patients with the same social opportunities as their peers. The organization has provided patients, their family and their friends with a chance to enjoy movies, parties and proms, as well as a safe, secure and accessible "teen room" where these young people can find peace and comfort, if only for a little while, in between their medical treatment and chemo regimens. I cannot think of a greater purpose for any organization and The Seany Foundation is to be highly commended for its selfless service to so many in need.

One of my favorite foundations to dedicate my volunteering to is Seany!! I was lucky to know Sean and feel lucky to be part of the family and foundation.
With the Seany Foundation, I have been able to bring "doing good deeds for others" to the attention of very young kids.
My own children's preschool has done Lemonade Stands and Trike-a-thons...to raise money for The Seany Foundation.
The family is so incredibly warm and welcoming, and they always show up to meet the kids and, in a very appropriate way, THANK the kids and let them know what they have done to help other children not as fortunate. This is just the start of making magic for the Seany Foundation!

This was my first opportunity working with The Seany Foundation. It was an amazing night! I got to DJ their Poker benefit and the vibe and energy was amazing from start to finish. I hope that they had as much fun with me as I had with them! Great organization!

The people involved in creating and growing the efforts for the Seany Foundation are what make this cause so special. Their empathy, creativity, and hard work make for uniquely effective results. It's a privilege to be a part of it.

My friends and I attended the Sex and the City movie premier for the Ladies Movie Night. Everybody was so nice and helpful. Great, positive atmosphere! I loved how upbeat and fun the entire evening was. We went for the birthdays of two people in my group. In most situations a fundraiser is not the way you want to spend your 40th, but this evening was a blast! Thank you to all the volunteers! We will definitely be back! :)

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!

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.

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 Seany Foundation is a very well organized company. The members are genuinely interested in the cause and also well informed on issues related to the company and sarcomas. I have attended a few events and they have been both fun and well run. I look forward to participating in upcoming events hosted by the Seany Foundation.

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!
