Ted Leonsis gifted 200 employees a surprise trip to Las Vegas to attend the Caps’ Stanley Cup Final games
Last Wednesday, the Caps advanced to the Stanley Cup final for the first time in 20 years with a Game 7 win over Tampa Bay. The joy of the fans and the players was profound, but it’s possible that no one was more ecstatic than Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, who has owned the team and witnessed its struggles firsthand since 1999.
It’s clear that Leonsis was eager to share his elation. The morning after the win, 200 Monumental Sports & Entertainment employees received an email with an invite to go to Las Vegas for free. The trip would be courtesy of Leonsis, who owns and founded MSE.
