On Thursday evening, the Capitals put on their best suits and ties for the team’s annual Caps Casino Night. All proceeds from the event, hosted in the casino ballroom of the newly opened MGM National Harbor, benefited the Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation.
Players interacted with fans while playing blackjack, craps, roulette, Texas Hold ’Em, and slot machines.
There were also several live auctions and several players got involved. Caps forward Andre Burakovsky tried to win a wine tasting event with fellow teammates Brooks Orpik, Alex Chiasson, Braden Holtby, and John Carlson, but was outbid.
On the evening, through event tickets, a raffle, and silent auctions, the MSE Foundation raised $302,400 during the seventh iteration of their event.
Some of the popular items up for auction included:
