Bruins raffle benefits FRAXA Research Foundation at 2016 opening home game
At each home game, the Boston Bruins Foundation hosts a 50/50 raffle with half the proceeds going to a lucky winner and the other half going to a worthy charity. The first home game of the 2016-17 season was on Thursday, October 20, at 7pm, against the New Jersey Devils.
35 volunteers for FRAXA sold $18,650 in tickets, which means they raised over $9000 to help find a cure for Fragile X syndrome.
Thanks to the Bruins Foundation and all our volunteers for a great night!
This was the second year that the Bruins hosted a raffle to benefit FRAXA. On Saturday, Nov 21, 2015, the Bruins played the Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston’s TD Garden. FRAXA volunteers (more than 50!) raised more than any other raffle during the year … over $25,000!
In addition, the Boston Bruins has contributed $90,000 to FRAXA to fully fund a research project for two years. http://bruins.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=769224
