Zach Bogosian plays hard on the ice with his 6"3, 220 pounds frame but he's a gentle giant.

With his helping wife, Bogosian created the Bogo Bunch Foundation. The goal of the foundation is to create a family atmosphere for those in need, especially those battling cancer. Bogosian lost his grand-mother, Armen, in 2013 when she lost a fight against lymphoma.

Bogosian also purchased a Keybank Center suite which he donates to charity. “The majority of the games, I’d say about 35 or 37 games, would be used for kids or patients, just to get them out of hospitals or out of their everyday life" said Bogosian.

"It’s something I’ve wanted to do for many years. It goes back to I grew up very fortunate with good health, and in my career I’ve come across people that have not been as fortunate." said Bogosian. "“I’m playing a game for a living. That’s very lucky. Take hockey out of it, and I’m very fortunate with good health".
