The Sharks are once again in their annual chase for the Cup. You probably want to get in on the action, but probably don’t want to be dropping hundreds of dollars for a three hour event. Luckily, the website Scorebig.com can solve that problem. They offer discounts on tickets from 10-60%, which, even if you can’t do the math, is a lot of money saved.
For example, tickets only a few rows behind rink-side will cost you anywhere from 290-500 dollars, if you buy them on the Sharks website or Stubhub. If you visit Scorebig, you can find those same tickets for as little as 180.
The annual Sharks Beard-A-Thon has come once again. If you were not already aware, hockey players do not shave their beards once they are still in playoff tradition. The Sharks have cashed in on this annual beard-growing by attracting fan interest and helping the community at the same time.
This is how it works: You grow a beard and post a picture on the Sharks website. Friends pledge your beard-growing; the money being pledged is sent straight to the Sharks Foundation, which helps in reading, financial, and medical support in your community.
But what if you can’t grow a beard? You can still “grow” one by uploading a picture of yourself and then adding a virtual beard to your face.
Though you probably feel great about helping out your city, one beard a time, you might also be wondering, “what do I get out of something like this?” Well, the Sharks Foundation has agreed to give out prizes to the top three fundraisers. While these prizes have not been specified, keep in mind that during a 2010-2011 Beard-A-Thon, sweepstakes winners won a Sharks autographed jersey plus two tickets to a Sharks home game the next season. Expect the prizes to be more valuable this time, as the winners will not be chosen based on a sweepstakes; they will be chosen on how much they have worked to help their community.
What do you think about this years Beard-a-Thon? Will you take part or will you simply ignore it. By the way, if you are interested in purchasing tickets to a sports event, but don’t want to break the bank, check out Scorebig here.
Keep on winning, and go Sharks!
