Via the Tampa Bay Rays: The Rays Baseball Foundation and the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association’s Educational Foundation (FRLA) are teaming up for the annual “Shirts Off Our Backs” promotion. The promotion will run throughout the final Rays homestand (September 23-28). Proceeds will benefit both foundations supporting youth and education programs.
There will be over 300 volunteers on hand, wearing blue “Shirts Off Our Backs” T-shirts, at Tropicana Field throughout the six-day fundraiser. All fans who donate will receive scratch-off cards giving them the opportunity to win a wide variety of prizes donated by numerous sponsors totaling more than $450,000 in value. Included in the prizes are game-worn jerseys signed by Rays players, which the players will personally present to the winners at the conclusion of the Rays-Yankees game on Wednesday, September 28.
