Mark your calendars - the third annual Comm Ave Charity Classic hockey game has been set for July 14, 2017 at BU’s Walter Brown Arena. Puck drop will be at 7:05 PM. Tickets will go on sale in May.
This game is a must for Boston hockey fans, as it pits former Boston College hockey players and former Boston University hockey players against each other in an alumni game to support some great causes. Money raised from ticket sales, raffles, and auctions goes to support the Travis Roy Foundation and Compassionate Care ALS. Approximately $110,000 has been raised over the past two years thanks to this event, which was founded by BC hockey alumni Pat Mullane and Andrew Orpik.
The Eagles and Terriers are currently 1-1 in CACC play - Boston University’s alumni team won in 2015, while the Eagles took home the victory in 2016.
You can’t beat watch NHL & AHL stars playing hockey in the summer for a good cause, so this is a can’t miss event.
