The Capitals’ popular Casino Night fundraiser is back for 2016 and tickets are now available, the team announced today in a press release.
The 2016 Casino Night will take place Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel. Tickets are on sale now: $250 for MVP tickets gets you food, beverages, access to the casino floor, live and silence auctions, and a raffle; $450 for VIP tickets gets you into an hourlong reception with the whole team before the event officially kicks off.
All the funds raised will benefit MSE Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the Washington Capitals.
You may remember Casino Night as the promotion that gave us the above photo of Nate Schmidt (among others) flashing some “cash” and wearing sweet shades, or that found Alex Ovechkin entering a raffle for a chance to meet … Alex Ovechkin.
