Online Auction

A Rec Sports Event

Cal Rec Sports partners with the Cal Alumni Association to host two online auctions annually to benefit Bay Area families and Cal Alumni student programs. Our Cal Bears Auction – Golden Bear Edition, held in early August, features steep discounts on Rec Sports memberships, services and programs as well as Cal Football and Basketball season tickets. Our Holiday Auction, held in November, features unbeatable deals from bay area restaurants, entertainment, art, travel and more!

Auctions Dates

Golden Bear Edition – August 8-14, 2016

Holiday Edition – November 7-13, 2016


Making an Impact

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Cal Alumni Association’s student programs and services and provide summer camp scholarships through the Cal Rec Sports Development Fund. To date, our partnerships have raised over $35,000 for Cal Alumni Association programs and services and provided hundreds of weeks of summer youth camps for Bay Area families.
