OAKLAND — The Oakland Athletics today raised $70,635 on Breast Cancer Awareness Day, presented by Zevia, with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society. Since the inaugural event in 1999, the Oakland A’s and their partners have raised nearly $1.4 million for breast cancer education and research.

Funds were raised through the sale of special ticket packages, commemorative pins, hats and necklaces, an A's autographed quilt raffle, and fan and sponsor support. For the second straight year, this year’s total donation eclipsed the previous year’s donation by 15 percent.
