Six months and dozens of stops later, the Washington Capitals’ Stanley Cup Trophy will make an appearance at Salamander Resort in Middleburg next week.
The resort next Monday, Dec. 10 is inviting residents to visit and get their photo taken with the cup, with lines allowed to form at 6 p.m. before the doors open at 7 p.m. After a few opening remarks from Resort Owner Sheila Johnson, also the vice president of Monumental Sports & Entertainment which owns the Capitals , the first 50 groups of up to five people will have their chance to take a photo with the cup from 8:45-10 p.m.
To do so, guests will need to bring a canned good or toy donation to benefit Seven Loaves Food Bank or Toys for Tots.
Already, the Stanley Cup has been to countless businesses, homes and events across the world, including to the nations of Canada, Sweden, Russia, Czechia and, for the first time ever, Denmark with Capitals Center Lars Eller.
Also, on Monday from 7-10 p.m., guests can enjoy “Rock the Red” cocktails, Capitals-themed cookies and a hockey shootout competition. Those wearing red will also be entered into two raffles—one for a two-person dinner at Harrimans Virginia Piedmont Grill and another for a two-person meal at the Gold Cup Wine Bar.
