The Washington Capitals have announced that on March 16, the team will host their annual Go Green Night when they take on the Edmonton Oilers at home.
Prior to the game, the team will wear special green jerseys during warmups. The jerseys will be auctioned off, with all the proceeds benefiting Leveling the Playing Field (LPF), which helps distribute sports equipment to underserved children in the DC Area.
Bidding is taking place through Handbid, and will end after the second intermission of the game. There will also be special autographed green pucks and sticks wrapped in green tape for bidding as well.
During the game, there will be opportunities for fans to learn how to better support a cleaner environment.
More from the Caps:
The Washington Capitals will host Go Green Night presented by WGL Energy on Monday, March 16, versus the Edmonton Oilers. For more than 20 years, WGL Energy has been providing competitive electricity and natural gas supply, renewable energy and carbon offsets to homeowners, small businesses and large enterprises in the Washington, D.C., region.
During Go Green Night, fans will learn how they can support a cleaner environment through green-themed activations throughout the game.
In addition, Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation will host a Green Auction with all proceeds benefiting Leveling the Playing Field (LPF). LPF is Monumental Sports’ social impact partner for the month of April.
The auction will feature autographed, limited edition green jerseys with green ombré numbers worn during the pregame warmups on Go Green Night. The auction also will also include autographed sticks wrapped with green tape and autographed green Capitals pucks.
The auction is currently open on Handbid and will conclude at the end of the second intermission during the Caps game on March 16.
LPF is focused on delivering the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of youth sports to underserved children. Through active solicitation of used and excess sporting equipment, it warehouses and sorts donations throughout the greater Washington region. The delivery of equipment to municipal and school programs serving low-income communities saves landfill space as well as program-funds, ensuring lower registration fees, expanded scholarship programs, and enhanced athletic program offerings for more children.
