Come win this Caps prize basket—which includes an autographed Troy Brouwer picture (thanks to the Caps for donating that!), four bobbleheads, a Caps scarf, blanket and more—and help raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation and Parkinson’s research.
Since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2011, our mother has been working tirelessly to raise money for TEAM FOX, to help the Michael J. Fox Foundation in their efforts to help find a cure. In just her first year doing this, she raised nearly $8,000 through events like the one tonight in Baltimore.
Please join us for this fundraiser as we help her continue to raise funds for the cause:

The Baltimore Business Journal is reporting that the Washington Capitals could be headed back to Baltimore for a preseason game this fall. Last September, the Caps faced the Nashville Predators at 1st Mariner Arena in the preseason Baltimore Hockey Classic, playing in the city “for the first time in 20 years.” Jack Lambert of the Business Journal writes:
Ticketmaster had listed Tuesday evening on its website a Sept. 27 game between the Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets at First Mariner Arena. The game, again billed as the “Baltimore Hockey Classic,” was removed Wednesday morning from Ticketmaster’s website, just a few hours after a Baltimore Business Journal inquiry to the Capitals (A screengrab of the listing, from April 9, is in the gallery to the right).
Capitals officials declined to comment on the game.
