Bruins to cut their hair for charity
(Video from last year’s Cuts for a Cause via Bruins website)
Each year right before the end of the regular season, the Bruins give their fans a chance to give their favorite players a haircut. Led by Patrice Bergeron and Toucher and Rich from 98.5 The Sports Hub, they’ll be doing it again this year in the ninth Annual Cuts for a Cause to benefit the Bruins foundation and Floating Hospital for children at Tufts Medical Center.
On Thursday, the Bruins announced the 24 players that will participate in this year’s event that will be held on Wednesday, March 30th at the Westin Boston Waterfront. Of the 24-man roster, 19 Bruins (Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Matt Beleskey, Ryan Spooner, Jimmy Hayes, Adam McQuaid, Lee Stempniak, Kevan Miller, Chris Kelly, Dennis Seidenberg, John-Michael Liles, Brett Connolly, Jonas Gustavsson, Zach Trotman, Noel Acciari, Landon Ferraro and Joe Morrow) will have their heads shaved by the highest auction bidder.
Additionally, for the first time in the nine-year history of Cuts for a Cause, fans will have a chance to bid to have their own heads by one of the five Bruins playing the role of barber — David Krejci, Tuukka Rask, Torey Krug, David Pastrnak and Loui Eriksson.
Other personalities that will be partaking in this year’s event include Michael Felger, Tony Massarotti, Jim Murray and Jimmy Stewart from Felger and Mazz, John Wallach from Toucher and Rich and The Boston Globe’s Chris Gasper.
Over $500,000 has been raised for charity since former Bruin Aaron Ward began the event back in 2008.
