Add the Tampa Bay Lightning to the list of sports teams or organizations who are helping in the effort to help Boston bounce back after last week’s tragic events.
The Bolts are in Boston on Thursday, and when they take the ice against the B’s, they’ll be wearing special Boston Strong ribbon stickers, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Also according to the report, the Lightning will then autograph the helmets and auction them off. The proceeds will be donated to The One Fund Boston, the fund set up to raise money for the victims and families of the Boston Marathon tragedy.
Boston mayor Tom Menino announced Tuesday that The One Fund had already raised more than $20 million. The Bruins’ opponent Tuesday, the Philadelphia Flyers, will auction off their jerseys which will feature the Boston Strong ribbon.
