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!

I worked at The Seany Foundation during it's first two summers. We started with a goal to fund a research chair at UCSD Moores Cancer Center with the help of those who love Sean. TSF has since expanded it's goals and its network of loyal supporters. The future is nothing but bright and all involved with the Foundation have no intention of slowing down!

I have been involved with The Seany Foundation for 6 months and they have continued to put on fun and exciting events that community members of all ages can enjoy. The foundation is dedicated to eradicating childhood cancer and I am convinced they will continue to have a significant impact in the lives of many families.

There is so much to be said about The Seany Foundation. I have attended almost every event, and they just keep getting better and better. For a charity that has only been around for 3 years, it is exceeding my expectations. Every event is different, with two things as a constant: they are always amazingly fun and the remind us and everyone who attends just what we are fighting for. The volunteers who are working for this charity are unbelievably open and willing to do whatever it takes to get this cause going. The Seany Foundation is going to do big things, so watch out!

Excellent organization. I have participated in only two of their events and they are truly a class act. Additionally, from what I hear, they are always looking for ways to increase the amounts earned from their events and use that for research. What a great cause and a great organization.

Of course, I'm biased, but I have to toot our own horn when I say we are doing some fantastic work to help our the kids under treatment in our local community. Our events not only help raise funds for our projects, but they are fun, too. It makes being philanthropic twice as fulfilling.

This is one foundation that I have found that attracts all different age ranges with varying events from Casino Nights to Movie Premiers. It is refreshing not to see the same demographic at all the events and see how the Cause is reaching everyone. Plus not one dollar that is raised goes to Admin costs, but instead to tangible causes to help the cause of Pediatric Cancer.
