MassDOT RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian today joined Boston Bruins Foundation and Mass Hockey leaders for the kick-off of a raffle for the first plate in the ‘Invest in Youth Hockey’ Bruins license plate series, plate No. 1.
Bruins Foundation Senior Vice President Amy Latimer and Executive Director Bob Sweeney along with Mass Hockey Executive Director Kevin Kavanagh joined Registrar Kaprielian at TD Garden to display the plate and support the raffle to boost Foundation efforts on behalf of youth hockey.
“This effort by the Bruins Foundation will re-energize the public’s interest in the Bruins specialty license plate series,” said Registrar Kaprielian. “Our hope is that it will also increase overall awareness of the RMV’s specialty plate program and the number of charities Massachusetts residents may choose to support.”
The license plate raffle begins today through May 4 at 5:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.bruinsraffles.org.
The license plate featuring the Bruins Spoked-B logo has raised almost $1 million for Mass Hockey initiatives. The plates cost $40, with $28 going to Massachusetts Hockey, Inc., and $12 one-time only for manufacturing expenses. Thereafter, the entire $40 renewal fee will go to Mass Hockey. This is in addition to the standard $36 registration renewal fee. Purchase a Boston Bruins "Invest in Youth Hockey" license plate at all full-service Registry branches or online at www.bostonbruins.com.
