Rob Gronkowski isn’t all fun and games after all.

According to TMZ, the big tight end was at the Paradise Rock Club a couple of nights ago, where he helped get the crowd to donate over $20K for the families of the firefighters who passed away due to the fire in Boston back on March 26th.

TMZ Sports has learned … the New England Patriots tight end hit up the Paradise Rock Club in Boston to help fundraise for the families of two men killed in the 9-alarm fire on March 26th.

We’re told Gronk had beers with some of the firefighters and even put on a hat from the Boston Fire Gaelic Brigade before taking the mic and saying a few short tributes to the men who “put their lives on the line all the time.”

Gronk told the crowd, “They’re our true heroes … God bless America … Let’s get GRONKIN’.”

We’re told all of the $20k that was raised at the event, organized by the Great American Foundation, will be donated to the firefighter’s families.
