The Boston Bruins continue to roll on the ice, but of it their doing even bigger things.
On Monday, Bruins players took part in the “Cuts for a Cause” benefit supported by B’s players including Zdeno Chara, Nathan Horton, Milan Lucic, rookie Dougie Hamilton and Shawn Thornton, who’s foundation, The Shawn Thornton Foundation, helped support the event.
Fans had the chance to bid on the rights to cut each player’s hair through an online auction starting March 25 and ending on March 29. The highest bidder received admission to the VIP session where they were able to meet and greet the players. All proceeds from the event go to The Shawn Thornton Foundation, Boston Bruins Foundation and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.
This year, a record-high 18 players participated in the event, agreeing to have their heads shaved by fans.
