The Boston Bruins continue to step up and show just how “Boston Strong” they are with their actions, and they did it again in announcing special jersey both the B’s and the Pittsburgh Penguins will wear for Friday night’s game at TD Garden.
The Bruins will wear Black and Gold sweaters with “Boston Strong” Blue Ribbon patches on them and the Penguins will wear “617” patches on their sweaters in a battle between the two top ranked teams in the Eastern Conference.
The game-worn sweaters from both teams’ full rosters will then be auctioned off by their respective team foundations with all proceeds being donated to “The One Fund Boston” (OneFundBoston.org), whose purpose is to raise money to help those families most affected by the events at the Boston Marathon.
In addition to the jerseys being auctioned off, additional Bruins sweaters will be raffled off at the Bruins/Panthers game on Sunday, April 21 and the Bruins/Lightning game on Thursday, April 25 at the Bruins Foundation table located at Level 4 Loge 4 to support The One Fund Boston.
One lucky winner will be selected to receive the game worn jerseys of both Jaromir Jagr of the Boston Bruins and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Raffle tickets cost $5.00 each and can be purchased at www.nhlalumniraffles.org.
Sweaters will also be available for auction at NHL Auctions (auctions.nhl.com) and will be available for bidding starting on Monday, April 22 through Friday, May 3. All proceeds for the NHL Auctions with the Bruins jerseys will go to The One Fund Boston.
‘Boston Strong’ Reebok t-shirts will also be available for purchase for $26, beginning Friday evening at the Bruins Pro-Shop and select retail locations inside the TD Garden. 100% of the proceeds of the “Boston Strong” t-shirts will be donated to The One Fund Boston.
