BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston Bruins fans helped raise more than $100,000 for a memorial fund benefitting a fallen Worcester firefighter’s daughter.
The Bruins donated their proceeds from a 50/50 raffle on Sunday to the Ava Roy Fund, which was created by the Worcester Firefighters IAFF Local 1009 after 36-year-old Christopher Roy lost his life in a five-alarm fire on Lowell Street last week.
In total, $112,000 was donated throughout the game against the Buffalo Sabres, as well as donations made online.
Anyone looking to make donations directly to the Ava Roy Fund can mail the Worcester Fire Department Credit Union at 34 Glennie St., Worcester, Mass., 01605.
