BOSTON, MA – On Tuesday, January 13, 2015, the Boston Bruins are teaming up with the American Heart Association (AHA) as Tufts Medical Center presents the Boston Bruins Ninth Annual Heart Health Night during their home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning at 7:00 PM.
Children and adults affected by heart disease will be invited in for the game and take part in various fan experiences throughout the evening. Guests of the Bruins will participate in activities such as bench assistant, high five lines, rides on the ice resurfacer, and a postgame meet-and-greet. All in-game fundraising, including the sale of mystery autograph pucks and the 50/50 raffle, will benefit the American Heart Association. Boston Bruins coaches, broadcasters and team personnel will be showing their support by wearing red heart health pins.
Two Scituate, MA off-duty Firefighter-Paramedics, Geoffrey Downing and Chris Collins, will be recognized at the Bruins game for their service to their community.
