On March 5 Sampling with the Sharks will be hosted by the San Jose Sharks Foundation, a wine tasting fundraiser. To entice donor prospects they have chosen a venue few can resist, tasting the finest wines of Northern California. Attendees of this exclusive event will meet The San Jose Sharks players, coaches and broadcasters.
“The San Jose Sharks are as deeply involved with the neighborhood we live in as we are with the game that we play. As role models, we feel responsible to give back to the community that so strongly supports us.”
The importance of building strong relationships with donors is shown by the Sharks Foundation’s Sampling with the Sharks wine tasting fundraiser, with their top donors being at the heart of this exclusive and exciting event. The event provides a casual atmosphere in which fans and donors interact with San Jose Sharks players, coaches, alumni and broadcasters – sharing stories of the game and their personal experiences. The collective shared excitement and passion for the game of hockey and life in the San Francisco Bay Area connect them in this unique and personal atmosphere – giving fans a truly once in a lifetime, up close and personal experience. The two hour wine tasting event includes 14 of Northern California’s most exclusive wineries, light appetizers, Live, Premier and Silent Auctions with proceeds benefiting the Sharks Foundation’s grant process and numerous programs dedicated to enhancing the lives of youth and families in need in the Bay Area.
The Sharks Foundation is proud to announce that partial proceeds from Sampling with the Sharks presented by Citrix wine tasting fundraiser will benefit San Jose Rotary’s partnership with Rotaplast International.
