SACRAMENTO, CA – The Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) ghosts and goblins (employees) are a spirited group. They are celebrating Halloween by spreading a bit of magic to deserving community groups, raising nearly $10,000 in the past three years through their employee Halloween silent auction.

In the spirit of frightful fun, a generous side emerges … with a little hocus pocus and a lot of generosity from RT staff, tickets are sold for the annual prize drawing with the proceeds earmarked this year for the Sacramento Children’s Home and Special Olympics.

“Regional Transit has a strong tradition of celebrating this ghoulish day with a few tricks and a big treat for the Sacramento Children’s Home and Special Olympics,” said Henry Li, General Manager/CEO. “I’m proud to be a part of a culture that cares for others.”

Through the generosity of several local businesses, RT holds a drawing for more than 50 prizes ranging in value between $10 to hundreds of dollars. All the proceeds of the ticket sales and silent auction are donated to charity.

RT employees often mention the satisfaction they receive from providing vital public transportation services to the Sacramento region. In addition to their daily tasks, many also show their commitment to supporting their communities by organizing and donating to RT charitable activities.
