The Washington Capitals raised $20,080 for Washington Capitals Charities through the team’s Mystery Mini-Helmets fundraiser, which took place at the Caps game against the Boston Bruins on April 19. The fundraiser featured 500 Capitals replica mini-helmets, autographed by various Capitals players that sold for $40 each.
The Caps mini-helmets were packaged in red bags sealed with a Capitals sticker so fans did not know whose autograph they received until after they had made their purchase. Every mini-helmet was signed by a member of the Caps, with five marked as winners. Each of the lucky fans who selected a winning package not only took home a signed mini-helmet, but also received an authentic autographed jersey.
Congratulations to Ethel Bouloubassis, Whitney DeCesaris, Chris Donesa, Leslie Kirsch and John Wood, the 2012 Mystery Mini-Helmets winners. Bouloubassis and Donesa won team-signed jerseys, while DeCesaris won an autographed Mike Green
jersey, Kirsch won an autographed Alexander Semin
jersey and Wood won an autographed Alex Ovechkin
jersey. The Capitals would like to thank all of the fans who helped make the 2012 Mystery Mini-Helmets a success.
