Oakland Raiders to donate 10 percent of season ticket sales to Oakland schools

This is a great story…

Every season ticket purchased and paid in full between May 1 and June 30 will have 10 percent of its gross donated to the Oakland public schools. With season tickets starting at $260 a piece and costing as much as $1,510, the donation to the schools can be substantial.

The schools could use the help. Last year, the school district went through a funding crisis. Teachers were laid off and programs were cut. The schools need help from the community, and the Raiders are stepping up.

Good for the Oakland Raiders for seeing a need in the community that supports them and stepping up to do the right thing (and then some).
