In-Game Auctions

How the Auctions Work: 

During every Sharks home game, the Foundation hosts a mobile auction with items on display at the Sharks Foundation Booth located outside Section 118 on the Concourse from when SAP Center doors open until five minutes into the 2nd Intermission. Items range from autographed jerseys, game-used equipment and Sharks experiences, to artwork and other unique items. Bidding takes places virtually so participants do not have to be present at the game to bid or win! Ensure you review important item notes before purchase as some items cannot be mailed and we do not ship outside the United States.

How to Bid: 

Use your mobile phone to text SHARKS to 76278. You will then be subscribed to receive a text notification every game to see items up for bid. No personal information is required until you decide to place a bid, at which time a subscriber must input valid credit card and billing info. Participants who prefer to use a computer can visit Sharks.GiveSmart.com.

Auction Closing & Item Pick-Up:

Subscribers will receive a text notification on the auction's approximate closing time. The auction will close automatically and the highest bidders will receive a text message confirming they are a winner. The winner's text will include a link to guide the winner through the payment process. All unpaid bids will be automatically charged within one hour of the auction closing. Winners will also receive a text notification on the approximate closing time of the Sharks Foundation Booth that game - items can be picked-up at booth until that closing time or winners can contact the Sharks Foundation to arrange pick-up/shipping. 

Auction Terms & Policies: 

If you do not pick-up your item at the game, you must contact SharksFoundation@SharksFoundation.org within 72 hours of the auction closing time to determine how your item will be secured with one of the following options:

1.) Let us know the next Sharks home game you are attending and the item can be picked up at the Foundation Booth anytime between from when doors open until the end of the 2nd Intermission. The game you would like to pick-up at must fall within 30 days from the purchase date. 

2.) Schedule an appointment on a non-event day, Monday-Friday, anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to pick-up the item at SAP Center. This option requires you to request a specific day and time and allow the Foundation at least 24 hours' notice to confirm your appointment. Do not come to SAP Center without an appointment as you will be turned away by Security. 

3.) If the item was not advertised as "cannot be shipped," you can request that we ship your item to a U.S. mailing address only. 

VERY IMPORTANT: We cannot store purchased items. Failure to contact the Foundation within 72 hours of purchasing the item, or failure to respond to Foundation messages to schedule item pick-up/delivery will result in loss of the item without a refund. If an item is not secured by the winner within 30 days from the purchase date, it will be donated back to the Sharks Foundation.
