Capitals Players & Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic Host “Wish Upon A Par” Event (PHOTOS)


On Sunday, Washington Capitals fans had the exclusive opportunity to attend the “Wish Upon A Par” event, hosted by Brooks and Erin Orpik, Tom Wilson, and Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic. NoVa Caps’ photojournalist Joe Noyes was on hand capturing the action this afternoon. (If you haven’t done so already, please give Joe a follow on Instagram and check out his website here.)

The day was full of fun games and food at Topgolf. In addition, fans and players were able to grant wishes to local children with critical illnesses. NBC Sports Washington commentators Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin participated in an auction and meet-and-greet.

About Make-A-Wish

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

For every wish granted there is another local child waiting for their wish.

The Mid-Atlantic chapter serves children who reside in the District of Columbia, Maryland and northern Virginia. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic has granted more 10,000 wishes to local children.

Following referral, a certified medical professional must verify that the child has a critical illness. There are no other qualifications based on sex, race, religion, socioeconomic status or any other demographic category.

Over 500 volunteers help the Mid-Atlantic chapter maintain its grassroots support by delivering the organization’s mission to seriously ill children.

For any questions, please visit the About the Event page or email
