Caps Today 9/24

Washington Capitals forwards Jay Beagle, Aaron Volpatti and Tom Wilson are teaming up with KaBOOM! to build a new playground at the Eagle Center at McGogney on Thursday, Sept. 26.

Beagle, Volpatti and Wilson will be joined by Washington Wizards guards Bradley Beal and Glen Rice Jr. and more than 200 volunteers from Eagle Academy Public Charter School and the Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation. The playground will be the first built by KaBOOM! and Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, but the third built with the assistance of the Washington Capitals. MSE Foundation serves as the funding partner for the playground, which costs $83,500.

The Capitals and Wizards players will arrive to aid in the construction at 2 p.m. Media planning to attend are asked to notify communications coordinator Megan Eichenberg at
