The Foundation holds several Mystery
Puck fundraisers during the hockey season.
On each designated Mystery Puck date, a
limited number of themed pucks are sold on
the Concourse Level at designated areas near
the North and South entrances for $20 each.
Every puck is signed by a Sharks player and
then wrapped so the player’s identity remains
a mystery until after the purchase.
The Sharks Foundation also hosts an
in-game auction featuring unique Sharks
memorabilia and merchandise at the Sharks
Foundation Booth located outside Section 118
on the Concourse Level at every home game.
Fans can bid on these exclusive items through
a mobile bidding platform by texting SHARKS
Net proceeds from Mystery Puck sales
and in-game auctions benefit the Sharks
Foundation and other select non-profits.
TANK TAILGATE AT FAN FEST
Tank Tailgate at Fan Fest is a private, ticketed
event for guests 21 years of age and older,

Autumn Street right outside SAP Center and
features live music, food trucks and a photo
booth, as well as the opportunity to mingle
with Sharks players and alumni. Tank Tailgate
tickets double as Fan Fest tickets, allowing
purchasers access inside SAP Center for other
Sharks related activities. Net proceeds from
Tank Tailgate benefit the Sharks Foundation.
