WASHINGTON, D.C. - For Lisa Bridgeman, a recent visit to Kettler Capitals Iceplex enabled the mother of three to celebrate the upcoming holidays along with the Washington Capitals, Mystics and Wizards.

Joined by her young nephew, Seth Reid, Bridgeman was at the Arlington, Va., rink for Monumental Sports & Entertainment’s Family-to-Family holiday party.

Created by the Wizards 16 years ago, the Family-to-Family initiative spreads cheer by allowing the Capitals, Mystics and Wizards to “adopt” local families in need for the holidays.
