The Boston Bruins are donating the proceeds gained from their 50/50 raffle to a fallen firefighter’s family.
The Bruins said the team would be donating in honor of Worcester firefighter Lt. Jason Menard, who died while fighting a house fire on Wednesday and saving two members of his crew from the burning home, Boston 25 News reported.
Menard was slated to leave for a trip to Disney with his wife and three children later in the day.
The Boston Bruins Foundation 50/50 raffle is still accepting donations.
The Professional Fire Fighters of Massachusetts Foundation is also accepting donations on Menard’s behalf, and 100 percent of those donations will go directly to Menard’s family.
