On Wednesday, April 16, as the San Jose kicked-off the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, the franchise kicked-off a new, unique, and colorful marketing promotion earlier in the day and closer to home.
As part of the team's "Sharks For Life" marketing campaign, one lucky family in Los Gatos, the Dr. Robert Beech family, was selected from more than 1,000 entries to have their house painted Sharks Teal, the color most synonymous with the Bay Area's NHL franchise. Completed by the Painting Pros on Wednesday morning, the Beech family will have their home painted teal for the duration of at least one-year.
To celebrate the first "Teal Home of Sharks Territory," Sharks Executive Vice President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Flavil Hampsten, former Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle, and Sharks mascot S.J. Sharkie visited the Beech family and presented the team with a Sharks flag to fly in the front of the home, a Sharks jersey, a Sharks Territory sign for the front lawn, and a plaque, similar to a historic marker, designating it as an "Official Teal House of Sharks Territory."
Additionally, four other Bay Area homes from San Francisco to Pleasanton to San Jose have also been selected to also receive a custom Sharks paint job in the next few weeks. These five homes will be designated as charter members of the "Teal Houses of Sharks Territory."
Fans interested in learning how to have their house registered as an "Official Teal House of Sharks Territory" can sign-up on the Sharks web page at www.sjsharks.com/tealhouse.
