ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have announced a new plan to help local schools while filling stadium seats.
Raiders CEO Amy Trask says the team will donate 10 percent of the gross proceeds of new season tickets purchased and paid for from May 1 to June 30 to the Oakland Unified School District.
The price of Raiders season tickets ranges from $260 for upper-level seats to $1,510 for premium tickets.
Oakland schools have endured teacher layoffs and some closures in recent years as officials get back on financial track.
The state took over the district in 2003 after officials ran up a deficit of roughly $82 million. The district regained control in 2009, but is still making annual debt payments of about $6 million.
