End Polio Now Nights


We are pleased to announce that the Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards are continuing the partnership to support our End Polio Now campaign. The Washington Capitals End Polio Now Night will take place on Saturday, February 20 at 7:00 p.m. as the Capitals face the New Jersey Devils. Three dollars from every ticket sold will be again contributed to Rotary's PolioPlus program.

Tickets for the February 20 game are very limited so please place your order as soon as possible. Prices are $42 for Mezzanine Ends (Attack or Defend) seats and $62 for Mezzanine Center seats. I strongly encourage clubs to designate a coordinator to buy a block of seats for its members. All orders of more than 10 tickets must be purchased through Bobby Minnette at rminnette@monumentalsports.com or (202) 292-1947.

If you wish to order tickets individually, please use the following instructions:

1) Click on the following web page: www.msesales.com/caps/endpolio
2) Enter promo code ENDPOLIOCAPS (case sensitive)
3) Select section and seats you desire
4) Set up Monumental Sports account if you do not have one already
5) Purchase tickets

All online orders will be subject to all service charges and handling fees. Please note that you will not be able to print your tickets until 72 hours prior to the game.

We also continue our great relationship with the Washington Wizards with another End Polio Now Night on Saturday, March 19. This game features the Wizards versus the revived New York Knicks. Again, three dollars from each ticket sold will go to our PolioPlus program.

As with the Capitals, all ticket orders of more than 10 must be purchased through Bobby Minnette. It is best to have a club coordinator for this event as well. Individual tickets can be ordered online at www.msesales.com/wiz/endpolio. The promotion code is ENDPOLIOWIZ. All fees will apply to online orders. Ticket prices are $26 and $31 for Upper Level seats.
