Ruiz 4 Kids seeing silver and black
Ruiz 4 Kids, a non-profit organization formed in conjunction with Ruiz Foods, has once again been named a beneficiary of the Oakland Raiders NFL football team.
This special partnership allows fans to buy NFL tickets and support Ruiz 4 Kids in the process. Ruiz 4 Kids will be selling tickets to the Raiders’ home games during the 2013 football season.
Tickets are available at the reduced price of $45-$60 based on seating location. For each ticket sold, the Raiders will make a generous donation to Ruiz 4 Kids.
The ticket buyer not only gets to attend the game, they help sustain Ruiz 4 Kids’ programs serving children and youth in California’s Central San Joaquin Valley. For tickets, call 559-591-5510 x 2118.
“Both Ruiz 4 Kids and Ruiz Foods appreciate the Oakland Raiders’ commitment to the community,” said Kim Ruiz Beck, Ruiz 4 Kids President and Chairman, Ruiz Foods Inc. “By giving Ruiz 4 Kids this opportunity they are helping make a difference in the lives of children.”
Ruiz 4 Kids’ primary mission is to provide opportunities to inspire hope and change in children’s lives. Ruiz 4 Kids was founded in 1990 when Ruiz Foods Team Members approached Fred Ruiz asking him to help them explore ways to assist families with children in need.
Since then, Ruiz 4 Kids has organized two annual fundraising events – a golf invitational to raise monies for college scholarships and a fiesta event to raise monies for area non-profits who are in need to grow their children-focused programs.
In the past three years, Raiders ticket purchases have raised more than $20,000 for Ruiz 4 Kids.
These funds helped fuel the organization’s new Mini-Grants for Teachers program which this year provided over $14,000 in funding for local classrooms.
