Since its inception three years
ago, the Charity Beanpot Challenge has raised over $595,000!
Welcome to the Charity Beanpot Challenge websiteWe hope you will be inspired to participate in one of 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 11th, at Boston University’s Agganis Arena. Following the Charity Challenge games, each player will receive a ticket to the private Garden View Suite to watch the Beanpot Championship and consolation games. Food and beverages will also be provided. There will also be a reception for players at the Capital Grill on Monday, January 7th, from 6-8 p.m.
This year we will have two separate games, one game for those players who rarely lace up their skates or may be a little older, and a 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 their family, friends, and coworkers. Our hope is for each player to do their best to raise a minimum of $2000. The event is open to a limited number of players.

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 three years ago, the Charity Beanpot Challenge has raised over $595,000. This year we hope to raise another $175,000. In years past the charity game has included celebrity players Ray Bourque, Bob Sweeney, Mike Eruzione, Scott Young, and more...
