Salamander Resort & Spa | Dec. 5, 2018

Salamander Resort & Spa will “Rock the Red” and publicly display the Stanley Cup Trophy on Monday, December 10 to celebrate the 2018 NHL Champion Washington Capitals.

In celebration of the team’s first championship, the resort will provide photo opportunities with the legendary trophy for the first 50 groups that show up, while collecting items for local charities. The resort also will offer a variety of programming including a “Rock the Red”celebration at Gold Cup Wine Bar, adult hot chocolate station, and a hockey shootout competition. All attendees are encouraged to wear red, while the Capitals flag will be flown over the property.

Resort Owner Sheila Johnson, who also is vice president of Monumental Sports & Entertainment – the Capitals ownership group, will begin the program with a short welcome at 8:30 p.m.

“It is so important for me to publicly display this amazing trophy and to celebrate the Washington Capitals’ amazing achievement with Middleburg,” said Johnson. “I thank the NHL for allowing us to bring the Stanley Cup to our town, and I’m thrilled that the Loudoun County community and our resort team members have an opportunity to create memories, while also collecting items for two worthy causes.

The three-foot-high trophy will be available for photography in the resort’s Living Room from 8:45 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. for the first 50 groups. Doors will open at 7 p.m. at which time groups will be assigned a number to guarantee a photo timeslot. To obtain a number, fans must bring a canned good or toy donation which will benefit the Seven Loaves Food Bank or Toys for Tots. The resort encourages attendees to arrive early to secure a timeslot. After the first 50 groups, photography will be permitted as time allows.
