SAN JOSE, CA - The Sharks Foundation announced today that it will partner with the Koret Foundation and Taube Philanthropies for the third season of the Goals for Kids Program.

The six beneficiaries are the American Heart Association - Silicon Valley Division, Child Advocates of Silicon Valley, JW House, Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area, Ronald McDonald House at Stanford and Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.
