Yes. They probably wont earn much of it. Just a little "Hey they are

Mention them as a sponsor. Not much, but why not ask? They can only say

Ask the Projects if they need tickets and how much and then pay for
this (two or three days before LT starts, so most people really know
they are going to the LT and order one then. Probably "order" via
Webinterface like the one for the Gym Hall/Barbecue for this LT).
Everyone who ordered one must pay for it. If he uses it or not.
Before that ask the S-Bahn that you expect between X and Y Tickets, how
much does it cost...
