Several members of the Washington Capitals and their better halves spent Saturday afternoon, February 5 at Lucky Strike bowling to benefit cancer survivorship programs at Virginia Hospital Center.
Survivorship is the experience of living with, through and beyond cancer for both patients and the people in their lives who are impacted by the diagnosis.
Michele Werner, director of development for the Virginia Hospital Center Foundation, was encouraged by the success of the inaugural event. Werner started working with the Caps' better halves about six months ago to create a "really family-friendly, fun event."
Brooks Laich and his girlfriend made a surprise appearance, however, didn't bowl. Matt Bradley and Eric Fehr didn't bowl due to injuries and despite declaring that he was a good bowler, D.J. King didn't bowl because he was a little tardy to the event.
