BOSTON (WHDH) - The Boston Bruins Foundation, Brad Marchand, and a Canadian artist are teaming up to raffle off limited edition artwork to benefit a former Milton Academy hockey player who suffered a spinal injury on the ice in 2021.
The “Marchy” Art Print Raffle is being held in support of former Milton Academy hockey player Jake Thibeault, who was injured as a senior and is still recovering and needs extensive physical therapy.
Bruins Foundation President Bob Sweeney said, “He’s got a great personality, he works hard each and every day.”
Hanging a Thibeault jersey during a game, the Bruins have been rallying behind Jake, with the team’s foundation now raffling off limited edition artwork to help him in his recovery.
The artwork is special print entitled “Marchy,” featuring a tribute to B’s star, Brad Marchand, Jake’s favorite player, and the ferocity and compassion he is known for on the ice.
“It depicts special moments in his life – it symbolizes part of his family, the Bruins, he’s a hunter – if you look closely at the glove, there’s an outline of the Canadian flag,” Sweeney said.
All proceeds from the raffle will assist Jake in his recovery, helping cover some of the thousands of dollars’ worth of costs that may not be completely covered by insurance.
There are 63 limited edition prints in the raffle that have been signed by Marchand and artist, Glen McMinn. You can get a ticket by texting Bruins to 76278 or at bruinsraffles.com.
