WILMINGTON, MA — Just days after getting his number retired by the Boston Bruins, hockey great Rick “Nifty” Middleton was in Wilmington, headlining a “Toys For Tots” drive fundraiser.
The event, organized by Frank and Karen West and held at West Real Estate (386 Main Street), attracted more than a hundred fans in just two hours. Middleton gave out autographs and posed for photos in exchange for new, unwrapped toys donations.
Radio Station AMP 1033 was on site to play music and give away prizes. Several sports-themed prizes were raffled off. Wilmington’s Boy Scout Troop 136 handed out Toys For Tots merchandise.
