OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland Athletics raised $29,189 at this evening's 15th Annual A's Root Beer Float Day. All proceeds benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Current and former A's players, broadcasters, various Bay Area TV and radio personalities and celebrities served root beer floats for two hours before tonight's game. Proceeds were raised through the sale of floats and souvenir mugs, as well as tips given in exchange for autographs and pictures with the celebrity scoopers.
