Tonight the Washington Capitals are “going green” — with their jerseys and supporting a local cause to improve our environment for the DC area. Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation (MSN&EF) is hosting a Go Green Auction at Verizon Center tonight.
MSN&EF will auction off the green jerseys that the Capitals players wore and signed during warm-ups for tonight’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes. The auction also features pucks autographed by Capitals’ players.
Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Anacostia Waterfront Trust and $5,000 of the proceeds will be dedicated to the Anacostia Watershed Society. While the jerseys and pucks are on display at the Verizon Center, the auction is open to ALL fans via Handbid, a mobile-based bidding app that fans can download on their smart phones.
Handbid allows bidders to participate in the auction from any location. Simply search your carrier’s application library and add it to your mobile device. Placing a bid allows you to see real-time updates, higher bid notifications to keep you in the game and a secure online check out portal to make your purchases.
The Anacostia Waterfront Trust is a citizen-led nonprofit group with a misson to create a world-class waterfront along the Anacostia River. The group’s board of directors includes chairman and former DC mayor Anthony Williams and Zachary Leonsis, Vice President Monumental Sports Network and son of Washington Capitals Owner Ted Leonsis.
