Proceeds from select ticket sales and auction items will be donated to the American Cancer Society and the Cancer Prevention Institute of California, and the A's will honor Breast Cancer Connections-a local charity that benefits those with breast cancer-with the 10th annual $5,000 "A Gift of Faith" grant, named after the late KTVU reporter Faith Fancher. (See separate media release for more details).
