Thursday afternoon the Capitals announced a new event in their charity fundraising lineup: the inaugural “Bourbon and Cigar” alumni night. The event will take place on the rooftop of the W Hotel in DC on June 26th from 7-10 PM. It will benefit the Washington Capitals Alumni Association and a high school scholarship program the association is organizing.
Among the alumni scheduled to attend and participate in “storytelling sessions” are Caps legends Rod Langway and Olie Kolzig, as well as fan favorites Craig Laughlin, Alan May, Mike Knuble, and Matt Bradley. The full list of alumni can be found here, and is subject to change.
Tickets cost $125 and are available on WashingtonCaps.com. Cocktail attire is required, and only fans 21 and older are allowed to attend.
Bourbon and Cigar night joins a plethora of Caps charity events, including the popular Casino Night and the new “Wish Upon A Par” event that debuted this February.
