Cool treat holiday inspires A&W root beer float giveaway


By Benjamin Mullin

A&W restaurants throughout Sacramento are celebrating National Root Beer Float Day today by giving away free floats to customers.

Restaurants in the American-fair food chain will start handing the floats out at 2 p.m. and continue until the 10 p.m. closing.

In exchange, patrons will be encouraged to make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization that serves veterans and service members who suffered physical or mental trauma during their military career after 2001.

You can pick up your free root beer at these Sacramento-area A&W restaurants:

3030 Capitol Ave.

1601 Del Paso Blvd.

2312 Arden Way

2920 Del Paso Road
