Entries with the tag: defending the blue line
As reported last weekend, Martin Havlat and Brent Burns have each purchased suites for use by people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to go to hockey games. Both are continuing traditions they started elsewhere. Havlat donated such a suite in Minnesota, according to the press release, and also in Chicago, according to Twitter. I’m having trouble verifying that last bit, these guys don’t broadcast this stuff. That’s nice. It’s inconvenient for nosy people like me but it is laudable.
Burns established Burnzie’s Battalion, part of Defending the Blue Line, when he was in Minnesota. His suite will be available to members of the Armed Services and their families. Havlat, in conjunction with the Sharks Foundation, will make tickets available through Bay Area organizations for underprivileged families and children with illnesses and their families.
