Newspaper Sales Program

The Tampa Bay Times FUND YOUR DRIVE Game Day Program gives your group an opportunity to raise money by selling the Tampa Bay Times at Tropicana Field before a Tampa Bay Rays Game. Your group buys the newspapers for just $0.10 on weekdays and $0.25 on Sundays and then sells them to fans as they pass through the gates at Tropicana Field. Your group receives a minimum of $0.90 profit from each sale. Your team members also receive admission tickets for the game on the day of your fundraising event. Please e-mail for more information.
