Breast Cancer Awareness Day

The annual A's Breast Cancer Awareness Day has benefitted the American Cancer Society, Cancer Prevention Institute of California, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Over the past 16 years, this event has raised more than $1.5 million for breast cancer education and research.

Funds were raised through the sale of special ticket packages, commemorative pins, hats, pink jerseys, heart ribbon pendants, an A's autographed quilt raffle, and fan and sponsor support.

Pregame ceremonies featured over 500 Bay Area breast cancer survivors forming a symbolic human ribbon on the field in dedication of hope and survival, and the release of white doves as a symbol of hope.

In addition, as a part of "A Gift of Faith" grant, the A's donated $5,000 to the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic in memory of longtime KTVU Channel 2 reporter, the late Faith Fancher.

The 18th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Day is September 4, 2016.


The A's will host the 4th Annual A's Bowling Bash on August 6, 2016. The Bowling Bash event brings together A's coaches, players, and the community for a fun night benefiting the A's Community Fund. For more information, please contact

Holiday Party at the Zoo

Oakland A's Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson and current A's first baseman/outfielder Mark Canha made the 2015 holiday season special for a group of deserving children at the A's Community Fund's annual holiday party at the Oakland Zoo, presented by Round Table Pizza. Henderson and Canha signed autographs and took pictures with students from Vincent Academy located in West Oakland, a reward for the students' excellent attendance and classroom behavior. Each child received a wrapped gift, courtesy of the Good Tidings Foundation, and the day also included face painting, arts and crafts, and a visit by Santa and A's mascot Stomper.

Silent Auction

Every Saturday and Sunday home game (and select weekday games), the A's Community Fund hosts a silent auction featuring both signed and unsigned A's memorabilia as well as game-used items. The silent auction is located in the A's Fan Center behind Section 120 and ends with the last out in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Proceeds from the auction benefit the A's Community Fund and various other local charities. Purchased items are tax deductible.
