Cuts for a Cause supports Pediatric Hematology/Oncology

01/01/2012

At the 5th Annual Cuts for a Cause, 17 Bruins players had their heads shaved to support the Boston Bruins Foundation and Tufts Children's Hospital. Bruins forward Shawn Thornton teamed up with 98.5 Sports Hub personalities Toucher and Rich, and the Barbershop Lounge of Boston at Royale.

Fans bid before the event to shave a Bruin’s head; many of the winning bidders allowed Tufts Children's Hospital Pediatric Cancer Center patients to take a turn with the clippers. Toucher and Rich even had their heads shaved.

Bringing hundreds of fans and supporters together, Cuts for a Cause raised more than $58,000 to benefit Tufts Children's Hospital’s Cancer Center Child Life Services, Shooting Stars and Brothers and Sisters programs.
