The Sampling with the Sharks wine tasting fundraiser is the Sharks Foundation's signature and most successful fundraising event of the season. Attendees of this semiformal occasion are able to enjoy some of the finest wines from throughout Northern California while mingling with Sharks players, coaches, broadcasters and alumni.
Sampling with the Sharks guests, 21 years of age and older only, will enjoy complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres, a Sharks-themed wine glass for tasting and access to incredible silent and live auctions featuring one-of-a-kind experiences, items, and autographed memorabilia.
Net proceeds from Sampling with the Sharks benefit the Sharks Foundation and its mission to aid underserved youth and families in the community. Partial net proceeds benefit a mutually agreed upon non-profit of choice between the Foundation and the event partner, Joseph George Wines.
