Tuesday morning, the Capitals announced that they will host their second annual TopGolf charity event, Wish Upon a Par on February 7 at TopGolf Loudoun.
You can now bid to play with one of eighteen different Caps players, who will spend the day eating and golfing with you and four of your closest friends. You’ll get unlimited food, beer, and wine, an event t-shirt, and the players will sign autographs and take photos. Head coach Barry Trotz along with NBC Sports Washington commentators Craig Laughlin and Joe Beninati are also participating in the event.
If you want to donate to Make-A-Wish and spend a day golfing at a beautiful facility, general admission tickets are now on sale which include food, two and a half hours of golfing, a silent auction, and the chance to win various prizes. VIP tickets are also available which include a pre-event meet and greet with the Capitals. All proceeds support the Make-A-Wish Foundation Mid-Atlantic.
Last year’s event, held on a gorgeous 70 degree February day, was a rousing success while groups golfed with eight different pairs of Caps players. Many of the players were having such a great time, they stayed well beyond the two and a half hours.
Here is the full list of Caps participating:
Bidding for the individual golf sessions with players start at $600, but if you divide that by five it’s only $120 per person, which is a fantastic price for an opportunity like this. Bidding will be open until January 26.
The afternoon event, which is coordinated by Brooks and Erin Orpik, joins the team’s other charitable events, such as Capitals Casino Night, Courage Caps, Better Halves Gift Baskets, and various auctions.
