Boston Bruins Shawn Thornton Hosts 3rd Annual Putts and Punches
- Updated: August 7, 2012
No stranger to hosting charity events Bruins winger Shawn Thornton is staying busy during the offseason, hosting his 3rd Annual Putts and Punches for Parkinson’s at the Ferncroft Country Club on Monday in Middleton, Mass. Despite the NHL’s negotiations of the new collective bargaining agreement, Thornton, along with netkeeper Tuukka Rask and forward Daniel Paille seemed to not be too concerned about their futures, and instead were focused on playing a game of golf for a good cause.
Thornton spoke about the CBA negotiations in between holes saying, “I have a lot of trust in [the NHL], they know what they’re doing. I hope we get things sorted out by the date they need to be sorted out by.”
According to the Boston Bruins, those registered for the event enjoyed 18 holes of golf followed by dinner and cocktails with Shawn Thornton. Players registered also had the opportunity to win one-of-a-kind sports memorabilia, raffle and silent auction items, and all of the proceeds from the golf tournament benefited the Boston Bruins Foundation, as well as the American Parkinson Disease Association.
