Raiders chief executive Amy Trask visited the media room a short time ago to hand deliver the news that 10 percent of gross proceeds from new season-ticket sales from May 1-June 30 will be given to the Oakland Unified School District.
“We are thrilled to announce our newest youth and community-based initiative and we are delighted to assist the Oakland Unified School District,” Trask said in a press release.
Quite a gesture from the Raiders, to say the least. It’s even more impressive when you consider the Raiders are donating 10 percent of the gross proceeds before the NFL takes its 34 percent cut.
