Raiders owner donates $50K to help prevent domestic violence

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders have partnered with the Biletnikoff Foundation and Tracey's Place of Hope as part of an effort to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault.

The Raiders announced Tuesday that owner Mark Davis donated $50,000 to Fred and Angela Biletnikoff. Davis presented the donation Monday night during the annual golf tournament benefiting the Biletnikoff Foundation.

In addition to monetary support, the Raiders said they ''will execute an extensive platform, including ongoing programs and public service campaigns to assist in preventing domestic violence and sexual assault.''

The Biletnikoff Foundation supports at-risk youth, primarily from low- to moderate-income neighborhoods or backgrounds. Tracey's Place of Hope is a residential program for adolescent girls in crisis with mental health and substance abuse problems.
