Brown uses Stanley Cup to benefit charity

From Sportsnet.ca – Every Stanley Cup winner looks forward to their official day with the Cup, and Los Angeles Kings’ Dustin Brown is no exception. Brown, however, used his time with Cup differently than his teammates.

The first thing Brown did with the Stanley Cup while it was in Ithaca, N.Y., was host a photo shoot. He didn’t charge money for a photo op, but instead asked for donations to a cause very close to his heart.

In January, the cousin of Brown’s wife, Nicole, was critically injured from a suicide bomber attack while on duty in Afghanistan. His name was Christopher Bordoni, and he died of his injuries 10 days after the attack.

“When we talked about doing a public event, the first thing me and my wife thought — we always do a lot of charity stuff — we had Semper Fi right at the top of the list. It was a good fit,” Brown told NHL.com.
