The first Raiders Toys for Tots autograph signing event will happen this Monday. On hand along with several Raiders players will be Raiderettes, and the Raider Rusher- the Silver and Black's youth ambassador.
For the event, the Raiders team up with the Marine Corps and Toys for Tots ask for a new, unwrapped toy valued at $20 or more in exchange for player autographs. The specific players who will be on hand have not yet been announced. It will just have to be a surprise. Like a gift!
Here are the details on the event:
Monday, December 7
(arriving early is highly recommended to ensure you get your item signed).

If you are unable to attend the event, you can still donate to Toys for Tots. Members of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve will be on hand to collect your donations at O.co Coliseum on Sunday, December 6 before the Raiders take on the Kansas City Chiefs. In addition to new, unwrapped toys, monetary donations will also be accepted.
Marines will be stationed in Raiderville, as well as the West Side Plaza, near the BART entrance, and Gates A, B, C, and D, from 8 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. on game day.
