Falla Memorial Fund event on Nov. 12

Message from the fund organizers:

Please join the Boston University community for the Jack Falla Memorial Fund Fundraiser on Wednesday, November 12th at BU's Agganis Arena. Jack Falla, who passed away unexpectedly in mid-September, was a BU alumnus, Sports Illustrated writer, BU professor, and a long-time member of the hockey community. We will celebrate Jack with the screening of the documentary Pond Hockey (which was inspired by Jack's book Home Ice), a reception, silent auction, and an open skate on Jack Parker Rink. The event will be held on Wednesday, November 12th from 6-9:30 PM. Doors open at 5:30. You must RSVP if you wish to attend.

Please go to to RSVP, donate, or for more information and details. Additionally, we have some terrific auction/raffle items including autographed hockey jerseys from Wayne Gretzky and the 2008-09 BU Men’s Hockey Team, Red Sox tickets and autographed items, Celtics tickets, Chicago Cubs tickets, and much more!

The Jack Falla Memorial Fund will benefit future Boston University, College of Communication sports communicators and sports journalists.
