The Washington Capitals raised $18,000 for Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation through the team’s Spring Puck Surprise, which took place at the Caps game against the Boston Bruins on March 29. The fundraiser featured 450 pucks that were packaged with Hershey’s Kisses and signed by various Capitals players and sold for $40 each. Fans lined up on the concourse to purchase the pucks as soon as they went on sale when the doors opened to Verizon Center.
Tyler Bensten, Lou Costanza, Joy Hampton, Danielle Kichler and Tyler Spooner were the Spring Puck Surprise winners. The five winners selected unsigned pucks and got to meet Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov after the Caps game. Kuznetsov signed their pucks and took photos with the winners.
All proceeds from the Spring Puck Surprise benefit Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the Washington Capitals, Mystics and Wizards.
The Capitals would like to congratulate our Spring Puck Surprise winners and thank all of the fans who helped make it a success.
