Caps Click to Win
Caps Care Click to Win is back for its fourth season! Click to Win is a community relations initiative that gives local schools an opportunity to win a Caps player visit, a team mascot visit, cash prizes and Caps autographed memorabilia.
Last year Washington Capitals Charities granted $24,500 to 35 local schools. During the 2010-11 season $28,000 will be donated to 40 schools throughout the Washington metropolitan area. Since the inception of the program Washington Capitals Charities has donated $73,500 to schools in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Schools can register online at WashingtonCaps.com by submitting a photo with a descriptive caption of their students “Rocking the Red” and showing their Caps spirit. Each month between October and May five schools will have their photos posted on WashingtonCaps.com. Those schools each will receive a $500 grant from Washington Capitals Charities. Students, school faculty and fans will then be able to vote for the school they think is most deserving of an additional $1,000 grant. The school with the most votes each month will win a total of $1,500.*
The winning doesn’t end with a $1,500 grant! The school with the most votes overall at the conclusion of the program will also receive a player visit and a Capitals team-signed jersey to be displayed in the school.
