As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, Washington Capitals’ defenseman, John Carlson’s wife Gina Carlson wants to remind us to give thanks – for all of the blessings in our lives, especially for our healthy children.
Gina is a passionate supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and through this Sunday evening at 6pm, she’ll be selling raffle tickets, where 100% of the proceeds will benefit St. Jude, and you will have an opportunity to win two tickets to Wednesday night’s game when the Washington Capitals host the St. Louis Blues at the Verizon Center.
Recently, Gina posted the following on her Instagram page (@gnacarlson):
As noted above, the raffle tickets are $15 each and you can purchase as many raffle tickets as you’d like! If you are one of the two lucky winners, in addition to winning two tickets to the game and seats in the 100 level section, you’ll also receive a “Meet and Greet” with John Carlson, shortly following the game.

“At St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food, because the only thing a family should worry about…is helping their child live. Because of you, there is St. Jude.”
Please consider sharing this article with your social network of friends and family who you think may be interested in supporting St. Jude.
