Caps Better Halves Gift Basket Auction

Posted February 7, 2016

Once again the Caps’ “better halves” (wives, fiancés or girlfriends) created gift baskets for a silent auction that took place during the Caps vs. Flyers game Sunday.  All proceeds from the auction benefit the Monumental Sports and Entertainment Foundation.  The charitable foundation supports many worthy causes in and around the Washington metropolitan area.

This season, fans could bid online using the HANDBID app.  They could bid from their seats at Verizon Center or bid from home.  This saves a lot of last minute bidders from pushing and shoving in front of the display tables to place their final bids.

The baskets each contained a signed jersey from a player and were packed with some of the players favorite items, gift certificates to their favorite restaurants and tons of awesome autographed memorabilia. Braden Holtby‘s basket even included an autographed bottle of Cholula Hot Sauce and Pink Floyd guitar picks!
