Shawn Thornton is working with 98.5 The Sports Hub for the sixth annual “Cuts for a Cause” on April 1. This fundraiser benefits the Shawn Thornton Foundation, the Boston Bruins Foundation and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.
Along with Thornton, there will be 17 other members of the 2012-13 Bruins roster participating in the event.
“Some guys I think show up for the free hair cut,” said Shawn Thornton before last year’s event.
Fans have the chance to bid to shave the head of their favorite participating Bruins players. In you are lucky enough to win this opportunity, you will receive admission to the VIP session of the event where you will be able to meet the players and receive a Bruins swag bag that includes signed Bruins memorabilia.
People can also purchase tickets to the event where they can witness the shaving of the heads in addition to being able to bid on a number of raffles.
The event is being hosted by Shawn Thornton along with Fred “Toucher” Toettcher and Rich Shertenlieb of the Toucher & Rich show on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
Last year the players raised $58,000 and this year, the 18 current players shaving their heads are the highest number of players participating in the event’s history.
