While attendance at the annual hockey game was free, attendees were asked to donate to the #WhyNotDevin fund which support Framingham’s Devi Suau, a 6-year-old boy battling DIPG, an incurable disease. His family launched an awareness campaign called #WhyNotDevin, hoping their youngest of four sons will be the first to beat the cancer that attacks his brain stem.

A GoFundMe was created in January for the family, with the goal of raising $250,000. More than $235,000 has been raised by 3,355 individuals. To support the fund, click here.
