The Washington Capitals raised $18,000 for Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation through the team’s Winter Classic Puck Surprise, which took place at the Caps game against the Colorado Avalanche on January 12. 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.
Jen Braun, Paul Ravenscroft, Matthew Arter, Ryan Murphy and James Meador were the Winter Classic Puck Surprise winners. The five winners selected unsigned pucks and got to meet Capitals forward and Winter Classic hero Troy Brouwer after the Caps game. Brouwer signed their pucks and took photos with the winners.
All proceeds from the Winter Classic Puck Surprise benefit Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the Washington Capitals, Mystics and Wizards.
The Capitals would like to congratulate our Winter Classic Puck Surprise winners and thank all of the fans who helped make it a success.
