Seany Foundation hosts inaugural Chefs Fest fundraiser for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
More than 1,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in San Diego. In recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September, The Seany Foundation will raise money for its various camps and initiatives to support the long-term emotional health of kids with cancer and their families. These camps connect children and families affected by cancer to one another, allowing them to escape the cancer patient label and instead simply be kids.
Tiana La Cerva, Director of Events with The Seany Foundation, visited the studio on Sunday to talk more about the Seany Chefs Fest fundraiser.
The Seany Foundation’s inaugural Seany’s Chefs Fest will challenge San Diego chefs to whip up delectable bites and present them for the community to judge. Families can enjoy live music and local art as the festivities raise funds for camping experiences that bring relief and happiness to kids struggling with cancer and their families.
The Seany Foundation raises funds to continue Seany’s Camp Reach for the Sky – an annual camping adventure bringing happiness to kids affected by cancer. Seany’s camps provide a safe space for kids dealing with cancer. Kids can have fun, feel “normal” and discover themselves with the company and support of peers experiencing similar struggles, while nurturing the mind, body, and spirit through time outdoors in nature.
