Dr. Morgan and Dr. McAuliffe are once again participating in the Bruins Beard-A-Thon. If you are not familiar with this, you pledge to grow your beard until your team either wins the Stanley Cup or is eliminated from the playoffs.

 

The Bruins have not made the playoffs the last two years so are beards have not made an appearance for several years now. Both have participated in the past to support the Bruins and Gail Wright who was one of the original PAGS front staff employees. She was a huge Bruins fan and passed away in May 2011 from Breast Cancer.
