SAN JOSE, California – Calling all golfers and Sharks fans! Tee off at the annual Sharks Foundation Golf Classic on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at the scenic Cinnabar Hills Golf Club in south San Jose. Join San Jose Sharks players, coaches, broadcasters, and staff for a day of fun in the sun while raising money for a great cause.
This unique tournament is the largest annual fundraiser for the Sharks Foundation. Registered participants will have the chance to play with Sharks players and staff on one of the most beautiful golf courses in Northern California.
“Our Sharks Foundation Golf Classic is the perfect opportunity for our fans and supporters to meet our players while also raising money for a great cause,” said Sharks Foundation Manager Jeff Cafuir. “It’s a one-of-a-kind event that’s sure to be fun for everyone involved.”
Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m., with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. All participants will have the chance to compete in various activities throughout the day, including: the Playstation Putting Contest, S.J. Sharkie’s Hit the Mascot, Massage Envy Sausalito’s Closest to the Pin Contest, and a longest drive and hole-in-one contest. Off the course, there will be a live and silent auction, as well as a raffle. Prizes will be distributed to the tournament champions, as well as to the second and third place teams in the low gross and low net categories. Food and beverages will also be provided.
All net proceeds from the event will directly benefit the Sharks Foundation. Last year, the event hosted nearly 200 golfers, and raised over $90,000. Throughout the past seven seasons, it has raised over half a million dollars.
