The Rays Baseball Foundation has teamed up with the Ted Williams Museum Foundation for the 50/50 Raffle. The popular fundraiser provides the chance for one lucky fan at each Rays' home game to walk away the winner of a cash prize. Uniformed raffle ticket vendors roam the ballpark offering tickets to fans in exchange for a donation to the Rays Baseball Foundation. The winning ticket is announced during the 8th inning of each game on RaysVision. Each winner receives 50 percent of the gross proceeds from the game's raffle ticket donations; remaining proceeds benefitted the Rays Baseball Foundation. The fan favorite program raises $500,000 annually for the Rays Baseball Foundation. See 50/50 Raffle. Also see official rules.
Since 2011, the Rays have collected valuable team memorabilia throughout the season to be auctioned off on raysbaseball.com. Items include authenticated new and game-used jerseys, baseballs, batting helmets, hats, gloves, bases, line-up cards and more. Proceeds from Rays Online Charity Auctions have raised more than $150,000 to benefit the Rays Baseball Foundation. See what's up for bid at www.raysbaseball.com/auctions.
Select fan experiences at the ballpark such as Rays alcove activities, purchasing food to feed the rays at the Ray Tank and posting a Scoreboard Message all support the Rays Baseball Foundation. Proceeds from these experiences raise $50,000 annually for the Rays Baseball Foundation. Wish someone happy birthday by purchasing a scoreboard message.
