Patrice Bergeron is teaming up with the Boston Bruins to give fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it’s all for a fantastic cause.
The B’s center will be raffling off his suite at TD Garden for the Black and Gold’s Jan. 26 home game against the Anaheim Ducks, with all proceeds benefiting the Denna Laing Foundation.
Tickets are $5 each, and the winner’s package includes 12 tickets for the suite, food during the game and a chance to meet Bergeron after the conclusion of the game.
Laing, a professional hockey player for the National Women’s Hockey League’s Boston Pride, suffered a severe spinal injury during the Outdoor Women’s Classic. She has had limited movement in her arms and no feeling in her legs since.
NESN’s Sarah Davis caught up with Bergeron before Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs to talk about the raffle and solidarity shared throughout the hockey community. Check it out in the video above.
