Chiarot was fined $3,763.44 for butt-ending Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry in a game last Friday.
A fan by the name of Kyle Klatt started a GoFundMe campaign in Chiarot’s name to collect that same amount for the Christmas Cheer Board.
A spokesperson for GoFundMe says the campaign collected more than $2,000 in its first six hours.
As of Monday afternoon, $4,300 had been raised.
All funds will go to support the Cheer Board’s efforts to fill food hampers and purchase groceries and children’s gifts this Christmas.
