SAN JOSE, California – Each year, the captain of the San Jose Sharks holds a stick auction to benefit the charity of his choice. Captain Joe Thornton has chosen The Aubri Brown Club as its beneficiary. The Aubri Brown Club is a non-profit organization founded by former Shark Curtis Brown that provides support and services to families who have lost a young child.

The Sharks Foundation will hold this special stick auction on Thursday, March 28 (vs DET) and again on Saturday, March 30 (vs. PHX). Each of the Sharks players have autographed their stick for the auction. Half of the sticks will be auctioned on March 28 and the other half on March 30.
