The Washington Capitals are encouraging fans to participate in one of hockey’s most visible traditions -- the playoff beard. Fans may elect to grow a beard themselves or make a financial donation in support of a Capitals player or a fan who has elected to grow a playoff beard. The Capitals’ Beard-a-thon is an opportunity for fans to grow their own beard and raise money for charity, as all proceeds will benefit Washington Capitals Charities.
The fan who raises the most money will win an authentic lettered jersey signed by the player of their choice and will be recognized at a Washington Capitals home game during the 2009-10 season; second place will win a team-signed stick, while third place will win an Alex-Ovechkin-signed puck. All donations for the Capitals’ Beard-a-thon are tax deductible.Count us in, but do you get bonus points for sporting a mohawk AND a beard?
Also, if you are going to go the beard route, we'd love to hear about it in the comments and we'd love to see some photos of the before and after! You can send those along to firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's Go Caps!
