The Boston Bruins and their fans raised more than $36,000 for the Boston Fire Department’s memorial fund through a ticket raffle.
Two tickets were auctioned for a game against the Chicago Blackhawks, with all proceeds going to the families of Lt. Edward Walsh and firefighter Michael Kennedy, who lost their lives while fighting a nine-alarm fire on Beacon Street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood two weeks ago.
Donations can still be made to the Lieutenant Walsh-Firefighter Kennedy Memorial Fund by going to Bosfirecu.com or by sending money to the address below.
