My Message

Dear Friends In Hockey,

The Corey C. Griffin NHL Alumni Pro-Am, in partnership with the Boston Bruins Foundation and the NHL Alumni Association, is a dream come true for any lifelong hockey fan. Participants will get the chance to play with and against some of the greatest players of our time to raise money for Boston Children’s Hospital, a world leader in the care and research of children’s health.

My son Matt played hockey with Corey Griffin from when they were 7 years old on the South Shore Kings through 18 on the Cape Cod Whalers.  Corey was always running point on raising money for organizations that featured kids in need. Corey, who suffered several major concussions and was treated by Dr. Meehan and Dr. Mannix at Children’s was a founding member of THE NHL Pro-Am and his desire to give back to the community was contagious and inspiring. For Corey, Dr. Meehan and Dr. Mannix were family and Boston Children's Hospital was Corey's team. The new quest for a championship for Corey was to find a safer way to prevent and treat concussions among younger athletes. Corey was always about going ALL IN at 120% and this is how the NHL Pro-Am went from a startup to one of the biggest fundraising events in Boston.

The tournament is now named after Corey. There is no doubt that Corey's enthusiasm for helping others was and continues to be the foundation of this tournament. Corey loved the Kings, The Whalers, Thayer Academy, Taft and Babson College and he was proud to be a leader on those teams. Corey was and is the captain of his greatest team which are the researchers at Boston Children's Hospital who are making unbelievable Strides in concussion research. This may be one of the most important teams ever put together in Boston. To that end we ask that you think of your most positive team experiences and remember that when a team is really in alignment like Corey's research team at Children's... anything is possible!!

At a time when an increased number of children are participating in contact sports at a younger age, it is essential that the fundamental gaps in our knowledge regarding brain injury be filled. We hope you will join us as Boston Children’s Hospital leads the charge on a national scale.

We are excited about the past 5 years, and what the money raised has been able to accomplish.  We are looking forward to making the 6th annual Corey C. Griffin NHL Alumni Pro-Am the best one yet!

We want to thank you for your past support and we hope that you can continue to help Corey's Concussion Research team do great things!!!

Thank you so much. If you have any questions please call me at 617-529-8838
