Obama to welcome Bruins to White House on Monday

Tuesday, 01.17.2012 / 12:28 PM / News


Last summer, the Boston Bruins all had their day with the Stanley Cup.

On Monday, they'll get their day at the White House -- and their charitable foundation will receive some well-deserved recognition.

President Barack Obama will welcome the Bruins to the White House to honor the team and their 2011 Stanley Cup victory, a seven-game series win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Continuing his tradition of recognizing sports teams for their work off the ice, President Obama will highlight the Boston Bruins Foundation which has raised and donated more than $7 million to various charitable organizations in the six New England states.

The Bruins will visit the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center on Tuesday night.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
