Charity auction loaded with items for Sharks fans

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is "out for blood." That's because every five minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every ten minutes someone dies from one of these diseases. To fund blood cancer research and patient services the Society is hosting a charity auction on eBay at, featuring items that are perfect for Sharks fans.

The online charity auction will be managed by Kompolt and runs from May 8-18, 2006. For more information, visit

Seagate Technologies has graciously donated some of the San Jose Sharks packages.

"At Seagate, we strongly support the effort to find a cure for the devastating diseases The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society so diligently targets," said Seagate CEO and President Bill Watkins. "The online auction is a fun and effective way to get involved in the effort as well as offering people in the community the opportunity to learn more about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and its efforts to fund research and help those diagnosed with these debilitating diseases." Watkins is a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Board of Trustees in the organization's Silicon Valley & Monterey Bay Area Chapter.

The following items are available:

Cameo on Shark Byte

The San Jose Sharks' colorful & charismatic commentator Drew Remenda hosts a 30-minute pre-game show on TV called "Shark Byte."
