Kyle Arrington has been in a giving mood of late. First, he handed over his jersey number to veteran safety Adrian Wilson. Then, Friday night, the Patriots cornerback spent time helping raise money for The One Fund Boston, in support of victims of the marathon bombings.

Arrington was at Scoreboards Bar & Grill signing autographs, posing for pictures and greeting guests at the fund-raiser, which brought in $7,500.

“All I needed to hear, was fund-raising for The One Fund,” Arrington said when asked why he’d give up a Friday night. “It’s a shame what happened that tragic week. As athletes representing this great city, it’s the least we can do, helping out any way we can. We just want to let the city know, as much as they support us, we’ll do the same in return.’’

People will always remember where they were, what they were doing on April 15.
