Caps Care Classic Surpasses $1 Million Mark
Charity golf tournament raises more than $180,000 in 2008 for Children?s National Medical Center, Washington Capitals Charities
Capitals ownership, coaches and every player on the roster took part in this year’s event, with center Michael Nylander leading the winning group, shooting a 59 in the scramble format with teammates Rick Kay and Pete Kirsch. A number of Capitals alumni, politicians and local celebrities played in the tournament, while Caps legend Peter Bondra posed for photos and signed autographs for each group.
Generous donations from sponsors and Caps Care Classic participants combined with an online auction to reach a grand total of $181,970.26 raised by this year’s event. That total is an increase of more than $10,000 from last year’s event.
