The Boston Bruins Foundation has teamed up with 98.5 The Sports Hub and Patrice Bergeron for the third annual Pucks and Paddles Ping Pong Tournament.
The table tennis tournament will feature players from the active Boston Bruins roster, on-air personalities from 98.5 The Sports Hub, and patients from Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. All proceeds from the event will benefit Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center and the Boston Bruins Foundation.
The event will feature a single elimination tournament featuring Bruins players, on-air talent, and the winning bidders. Fans can bid on the opportunity to play doubles ping pong with the celebrity of their choice.
Starting on January 2, fans can place their bids by visiting www.bruinsauctions.org. Bidding will end on January 13. The rounds will advance to a championship game featuring the final two teams, with the winning duo being crowned the Patrice Bergeron & 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Pucks & Paddles champions. In addition, the four best Bruins ping pong players will participate in a separate informal singles competition.
Tickets are on sale now and fans will have the option to select VIP tickets ($200).
VIP attendees will enjoy a pre-event meet & greet with members of the team. When purchasing VIP tickets, guests will either choose to be a part of the Gold VIP session featuring Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Torey Krug and David Pastrnak or the Black VIP session featuring David Backes, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand and Tuukka Rask. VIP groups and player participation is subject to change.
All proceeds raised will benefit Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. Participants will be able to bid on the opportunity to participate and partner with a member of the Boston Bruins and 98.5 The Sports Hub during the tournament.
