The Washington Capitals raised $56,425 from their Military Night Auction, held during Thursday night’s Capitals-Devils game at Verizon Center. 

The auction, which included autographed camouflaged warm-up jerseys from each of the Capitals players, signed military-themed pucks and military styled Capitals hats, is an annual tradition for the Capitals.

The money raised will go to United Heroes League and Our Military Kids. The two organizations provide assistance to local area military families.
