The Bruins Alumni team is known for raising a lot of money for great causes, but this one is a little different: the Alumni B’s are going to face...doctors?
That’s right: the Bruins Alumni team is playing a charity game against the Dana-Farber Rink Rats, a team made up of doctors, nurses and staff from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
If you’re from anywhere near Boston, you know about the great work done by Dana-Farber, but this is taking things to a new level: members of the Dana-Farber team had to raise at least $1,200 to play in the game.
Bruins alumni slated to play in the game include Andrew Alberts, Rick Middleton, Bob Sweeney, Reggie Lemelin and Terry O’Reilly, among others.
It’s a great cause, and a great chance to see a pretty cool hockey game. The game will be at Warrior Arena at 2 PM this Saturday, February 2nd.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids 10 years old and under. You can buy them online or at the door. You can also sponsor a player at the link above to help out a little more.
Per the PR team, there will be parking available at the event as well.
Best of luck to all parties involved in the event. Here’s to hoping there’s plenty of money raised.
Helping patients fight cancer on a Friday, playing against former NHLers on Saturday. These are some impressive pick-up players.
