Bruins to Support Those Affected by Boston Marathon Tragedy

Boston, MA – The Boston Bruins announced today, April 17, various initiatives to support those affected by the recent tragedy at the Boston Marathon. Below is a summary of the current list:

$250,000 Donation to The One Fund Boston:

Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs has pledged to donate $100,000 on behalf of the entire Bruins organization and Bruins players to the recently established The One Fund Boston, whose purpose is to raise money to help those families most affected by the events at the Boston Marathon. The TD Garden, NHL and NHLPA will also be making a donation in the amount of $50,000 each to show their support, making the combined total of all parties $250,000.

“Our family has been touched by the heroic moments of so many individuals and the strength and resiliency of this community to stand together in solidarity in support of those who were injured and those who lost their lives in this unimaginable tragedy,” said Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs. “On behalf of our entire family, we pledge our unwavering support to this community as the process of healing begins.”

Player/Team Staff ticket donation for First Responders to tonight’s game:

The Bruins players and team staff have combined to donate 80 tickets to ‘first responders,’ including Boston Police, Massachusetts State Police, Firefighters and emergency medical personnel who demonstrated heroic bravery following the events at the Boston Marathon.

“The efforts that have taken place from ownership, management, players and all our associates to put together the proper recognition at tonight's game for those who responded, helped and comforted all those who have been affected by the tragic events this past Monday have been remarkable,” said Bruins President Cam Neely. “Every member of our organization has assisted in many different ways to make sure we make Boston proud, make our fans proud and show what it means to call Boston home. I am very proud of our entire organization for the compassion and support they have all showed, although not surprised. We are all ‘Boston Strong.’”

Bruins/Sabres In Game Support:

Both the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres will show their support by wearing ‘Boston Strong’ decals on their helmets during the course of tonight’s game. Members of the Bruins organization will also be wearing blue and yellow ribbons in remembrance of those affected by recent events.

The TD Garden will be illuminated with blue and yellow lighting and will have two dasher boards installed that will display the ‘One Fund Boston 2013’ URL (TheOneFundBoston.org) and a blue and yellow ‘Boston Strong’ Ribbon.

Prior to the National Anthem, a ‘Boston Strong’ themed video will be played on the Garden HDX followed by a moment of silence to honor the victims and the first responders.

The National Anthem will feature TD Garden legend Rene Rancourt and the Boston Fire Department Honor Guard and the Bruins organization will encourage all fans to join in the singing of the Star Spangled Banner.

The Boston Bruins Foundation and 50/50 raffle will be accepting donations throughout the various concourses tonight, which will be donated to One Fund Boston.

There will also be a special “8-Spoked-Salute” honoring the first responders during the second intermission. The “8-Spoked-Salute” takes place at select Bruins home games throughout the season and traditionally honors men and women of the Armed Forces and their contributions and service to our country.

Brad Marchand Suite Raffle for the team’s first home playoff game:

Brad Marchand will be raffling off his own TD Garden suite for the team’s first home playoff game, with all proceeds benefitting the Richard family of Dorchester, whose son Martin passed away on Monday.

“Our whole team saw the photos of Martin at our game from last Thursday and learned that he and his family are big fans of ours,” said Marchand. “This is just one small gesture which I hope can help the Richard family during this incredibly sad time for them. What they are going through is unimaginable and we will try to assist them in any way we can.”

The raffle is live now and fans can enter by visiting www.bruinsraffles.org. In addition to watching the first home playoff game, the raffle winners will also get to visit Marchand after the game for an exclusive meet-and-greet.
