Tampa Bay Rays Partnership
Suncoast Credit Union is proud to partner with the Tampa Bay Rays! Through our partnership, we sponsor meaningful programs that impact our community and align with the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation by supporting the education of children.
Reading with the Rays
Another part of our partnership that we love is Reading with the Rays, a program that keeps kids reading all summer long.
During the summer, kids can pick up their game card at their local library. Then, they can check out some of their favorite books and start reading! The goal is 24 total hours of reading. Students use a game card to track hours and collect prizes, with two tickets to a Rays game as the grand prize for students who read 24 hours during the program.
In 2019, we had more than 44,700 participants from nine of the counties we serve. That’s more than 355,000 total hours of reading in one summer! There were 10,179 fans that experienced a game from the program during the 2019 season. We’re so proud of all of the participants and can't wait to see how many readers we get in the summer of 2020!
