You might remember we ran a story previewing this event a while back. Well, now the great event has taken place and it was a huge success. WBZ-FM/98.5 the Sports Hub, along with the Boston Bruins Foundation and the Boston Bruins of the NHL presented the 2nd Annual Patrice Bergeron and 98.5 the Sports Hub Pucks & Paddles event on Thursday, February 7, at Royale Boston (279 Tremont Street).
The single elimination tournament, which featured on-air talent, Bruins players, and winning auction bidders, raised $119,000 to benefit the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.
98.5 the Sports Hub midday host Marc “the Beetle” Bertrand and his ping pong partner beat Bruins Defenseman Matt Gryzlak and his partner to win the championship. Fortunately nobody was sent to the penalty box.
