BOSTON, MA - On Wednesday, March 31, Bruins forward Shawn Thornton and other members of the Boston Bruins are teaming up with 98.5 the Sports Hub to host the third annual "Cuts for a Cause" to benefit the Boston Bruins Foundation and MassGeneral Hospital for Children’s Pediatric Oncology Unit from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at Ned Devine's (1 Faneuil Hall Market Place, Boston, MA 02109).
Thornton and his teammates will have their heads shaved by auction winners on stage, in front of fans to show their support and raise money for children battling cancer. The event will be hosted by Fred "Toucher" Toettcher and Rich Shertenlieb of the "Toucher and Rich" show on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
All of the money raised at the event will be donated through the Boston Bruins Foundation and will benefit MassGeneral Hospital for Children's HOPES program. The program provides music and art therapy to the children and their siblings during their cancer treatments. The Cuts for a Cause funds will be used to purchase portable art and music media stations, including a portable recording studio so the HOPES therapists can work with kids throughout the cancer center.
