Heading to Kettler on Sunday to catch the opening day of the Washington Capitals’ Rookie Camp? Why not stop by a day early for the Second Annual Charity Hockey Classic?
The Charity Hockey Classic is an exhibition game between the Virginia Coaching Cardinals and the NCR Eagles joint military team – all to benefit Inova Blood Donor Services. The event is Saturday, September 11, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Per the CHC team, “The event raises money for new value-added testing machine for Inova Blood Donor Services, providing free screening to donors for diabetes, cholesterol, and heart disease. Also features a silent auction, appearances by local celebrities – including the Washington Redskins cheerleaders, Capitals mascot Slapshot, and the Red Rockers—and ‘Mites on Ice’ youth hockey exhibitions.”
As a bonus for Caps fans, defenseman Jeff Schultz will serve as the special guest coach for the NCR Eagles joint military hockey team. Brett Leonhardt and Wes Johnson will be there too, and Tara Wheeler will be returning as this year’s intermission game announcer.
Tickets are just 10 bucks; for more information, check out the CHC website. Game on!
