Since it's inception eight years ago, the Charity Beanpot Challenge has raised almost $1M. This year we hope to raise another $245,000.
Welcome to the Charity Beanpot Challenge websiteWe hope you will be inspired to participate in the games, or make a contribution on behalf of one of the players. All proceeds from the event will be evenly divided between the Mark Bavis Leadership Foundation and the Travis Roy Foundation. Please take a moment to read more about the work these two great foundations do.
This year’s Charity Challenge will be played on Monday, February 9th, at Boston University’s Agganis Arena. Following the Charity Challenge games, each player receives a ticket to the private Garden View Suite with food and beverages to watch the Beanpot Championship and consolation games. There will also be a reception for players at the Capital Grill to kick-off this great event.
There will be two separate games. The first game is for those players who rarely lace up their skates or may be a little older, and the second game for players that think they can still play. The puck will drop at 2:00 PM with the second game starting at 3:15 PM. Players are asked to solicit pledges from family, friends, and coworkers. We'd like to see each player do their best to raise a minimum of $2000 to help us reach our goal of $245,000. The event is open to a limited number of players - please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org> if you would like to participate this year.
The Charity Beanpot Challenge was initiated by Jon Loughborough. It was his idea to organize a benefit hockey game on the day of the Beanpot Tournament. As fate would have it, John worked in the same company as Dan Ronan, who as a freshman was a teammate and roommate of Travis Roy at Boston University. Since it’s inception six years ago, the Charity Beanpot Challenge has raised over $755,000. This year we hope to raise another $245,000 bringing the Grand Total raised to One Million Dollars.
