The Sharks Foundation hosts auctions on our mobile auction platform, Givesmart, and all bidding takes places virtually. Items range from autographed jerseys, game-used equipment and Sharks experiences, to artwork and other unique items. Ensure you review important item notes before purchase as some items cannot be mailed and we do not ship outside the United States.
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.
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 be contacted by the Sharks Foundation with pick-up or shipping information within 48 hours (or one business day if on a weekend) of the auction closing.
