Shirts Off Our Backs Volunteers


The Rays need your help! We are looking for volunteers to help with the annual "Shirts Off Our Backs" fundraiser. The event will run throughout the final six Rays home games of the regular season, SEPTEMBER 20 - SEPTEMBER 25.

Proceeds benefit the Rays Baseball Foundation which is dedicated to improving the lives of those in need within our community, focusing primarily on education, youth development, wellness and social responsibility. All fans who donate will receive scratch-off cards giving them the opportunity to win a wide variety of prizes. Included in the prizes are game-worn jerseys signed by Rays players, Rays tickets and more

The success of this fundraiser relies solely on its volunteers. The more dedicated the volunteer, the more donations are made to support youth and education in our community. You have been personally selected for this event by a Rays community partner. This opportunity not only allows you to give back to the community of Tampa Bay, but to also to raise awareness for your group. Please see below some information about this event, and how you can help.

For participating in Shirts Off Our Backs, you will receive:
  • A ticket to enjoy the game after your volunteer shift
  • A voucher to have a meal on us at the ballpark after your volunteer shift
  • Free parking to the game
  • A free volunteer T-shirt
