Washington Capitals Charities raised $18,770 through its Pick-A-Stick fundraiser that took place at Verizon Center during the Caps game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Jan. 15. The fundraiser featured 250 hockey sticks signed by various Caps players that sold for $75 each. The sticks went on sale when doors to Verizon Center opened and were sold out before the start of the game.
Caps fans Jordan Blades, Tony Freedman, Veronica Parmer, Janet Thompson and Matt Warden selected sticks that were not signed, and as a result got to meet Capitals center Marcus Johansson
after the game. Johansson signed the winners’ hockey sticks and took photos with them.
The Capitals would like to congratulate our Pick-A-Stick grand-prize winners and thank all of the participants who helped make it a success.
