BOSTON, MA – The Boston Bruins will host “Fan Appreciation Day” during the Bruins/Sabres contest at the TD Garden on Saturday, April 7 at 4:00 p.m. ET, in an effort to thank fans for their continued support throughout the 2011-12 season.
Immediately following the game, Bruins players will remain on the ice and throw t-shirts into the stands, then hand 27 fans that were chosen throughout the game the “Shirt off their Backs”. Each of these lucky Bruins fans will receive a sealed envelope containing the name of a current Bruins player they will meet that afternoon. After the t-shirt toss, these fans will participate in the on-ice ceremony where they will meet and take home the game-worn autographed jersey of that player.
In addition to winning the “Shirts off their Backs,” Bruins fans will enjoy an exciting day of giveaways. Upon arrival, every fan will receive a Bruins team poster courtesy of TD Bank. Throughout the game, Bruins fans will have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, including a Mohegan Sun VIP Blink 182 Concert Package, which consists of a hotel stay, dinner, two concert tickets and round trip limo service. TD Bank is also giving 2 lucky sections the Boston Bruins Championship season commemorative book “Full 60 to History: The Inside Story of the 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins.” Additional prizes include 2012 playoff tickets, various gift cards and Boston Bruins autographed memorabilia.
Among the additional prizes, the most coveted is sure to be the opportunity for one lucky Bruins fan and his/her family to have their 2012 holiday photo taken with the Bear, star of the Bear and the Gang series, on the TD Garden ice.
The 2011-12 Boston Bruins season is presented by the Massachusetts State Lottery.
