After a long absence attributed to last season’s Winter Classic, the Capitals announced today that the annual Capitals Casino Night is officially back. Casino Night will be Saturday, Nov. 14 at the Sheraton Pentagon City. Tickets go on sale for past attendees, season ticket holders, suite holders, and Club Scarlet members on Sept. 9, and to the general public on Sept. 15.
As in past years, Casino Night gives fans an opportunity to play fake money on a host of table games, including blackjack, poker, roulette, craps and slots, with Capitals players and staff. There will also be a raffle and both live and silent auctions for memorabilia and experiences. The best part is that all the money raised goes to benefit the Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, which does charitable work throughout the D.C. area on behalf of the Capitals, Wizards and Mystics.
If past Casino Nights are any indication, this will be a good event – just remember how much fun the Brouwer Rangers had at the last one. You may even witness Alex Ovechkin entering a raffle to meet himself.
From the Caps:
