Raiders give $54,000 to Oakland Public Schools

The Raiders promotion to give ten percent of their season ticket sales to Oakland Public Schools appears to have been a rousing success. It applied to all Raiders 2012 season tickets sold by June 30, 2012. The total has been tallied up and the Raiders are cutting a check for $54,000 to benefit Oakland Public Schools.

To add to this great deal, it didn't cost those purchasing season tickets any additional money. The donation came from the Raiders only. And this was not a situation where only a portion of the profits after all parties were paid was donated. No, this is 10% of the total ticket price. Which means Raider fans stepped up and purchased $540,000 worth of season tickets for next season by the deadline.

Season ticket prices range from around $250 to upwards of $1500. So at an average of around $800, that would have around 675 new season tickets sold between May 1 and June 30. Nicely done Raider fans.

And a great deal of credit goes to Raiders Chief Executive, Amy Trask, for her ongoing efforts with great initiatives such as this.
