The Oakland A's held their annual Community Fund Golf Classic on Thursday, June 24, raising over $100,000 for the A's Community Fund; which supports charitable organizations in improving the quality of life for people throughout the Bay Area.

In addition, a portion of this year's proceeds will benefit A's pitcher Craig Breslow's "Strike 3 Foundation" which he established in 2008 to help find a cure for childhood cancer and to honor his sister, Lesley, now a survivor of pediatric thyroid cancer for over 15 years. The A's Community Fund Golf Classic was sponsored by Chevron and State Roofing Systems of San Leandro.

The event kicked off with a Pepsi Long Drive Contest featuring A's pitchers Dallas Braden and Michael Wuertz, and outfielder Gabe Gross. Michael Wuertz was the winner of the contest receiving a Chevron gift card.
