Anchor Auction is the game-day silent auction that gives fans the chance to bid on exclusive Kraken gear, signed items, and experiences throughout the season. Every dollar goes back to our community and helps One Roof Foundation achieve our vision of a world where all kids have a roof over their heads, access to play, and clean air to breathe.
