Pete Frates ’07 received a standing ovation at the first annual Comm Ave. Charity Classic
More than 3,500 people packed Walter Brown Arena as Boston College and Boston University hockey alumni—all current or former NHL and AHL stars—played the first annual Comm Ave Charity Classic for ALS. Pete Frates ’07, whose ice bucket challenge raised millions of dollars for ALS research, received a standing ovation. The Massachusetts-based group Compassionate Care ALS will use the proceeds from the evening to provide medical and emotional support services for those living with the disease.
