The Washington Capitals raised $14,960 for Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation through the team’s Stanley Cup Puck Surprise, which took place at the Caps game against the Florida Panthers on Oct. 19. The fundraiser featured 375 pucks incorporating the Capitals’ Stanley Cup logo in a special design as part of the 2018-19 Puck Surprise Series. The pucks were signed by various 2017-18 Stanley Cup Champion 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 Capital One Arena. A limited number of pucks were available online to purchase through Handbid.com.
Sheena Dunn, Michael Ingham, Hope Jones, Steve Liu and Daniel Smith were the Stanley Cup Puck Surprise winners. The five winners selected unsigned pucks and got to meet Capitals center Lars Eller, game winning goal scorer from Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Eller signed their pucks and took photos with the winners.
All proceeds from the Stanley Cup Puck Surprise benefit Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, the official charity of the Washington Capitals, Mystics, Valor and Wizards, Baltimore Brigade and Capital City Go-Go.
The Capitals would like to congratulate our Stanley Cup Puck Surprise winners and thank all the fans who helped make it a success.
