A's Raised $32,000 at MUG Root Beer Float Day


OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland Athletics raised $32,000 at today's 14th annual A's MUG Root Beer Float Day. All proceeds will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Since 2003, the A's have raised over $385,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation through MUG Root Beer Float Day.

Current and former A's players, broadcasters, various Bay Area TV and radio personalities and celebrities served MUG Root Beer and Orange Crush floats in the Eastside Club today. Proceeds were raised through the sale of floats and tips given in exchange for autographs and pictures with the celebrity scoopers.

MUG Root Beer Float Day is sponsored by Pepsi. The ice cream for the event was donated by Dreyer's.
