“A veritable dream team of professional athletes” from the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals, and Washington Capitals joined together last month, in support of the Elaine Shuster Foundation‘s charitable kickoff celebration, reported The foundation was started by Eric Shuster, one of Elaine Shuster’s sons and director of strategic partnerships at Comcast SportsNet.

Co-hosted by Redskins Pro Bowl linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and former Redskins Pro Bowl cornerback Shawn Springs, the benefit sported a warm ‘Heart of Gold’ theme, continued the report.

The report also stated:

A long list of household names, including Nats third baseman/left fielder Ryan Zimmerman and Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, (shown left in photo, with Shuster in middle and Cousin’s wife on right in photo) among many others, also turned out for the occasion, which was organized by Shuster.

Shuster, who the Washington Post’s sports blog labeled “possibly the most powerful man in D.C. Sports”, is Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic’s liaison between company partners and local teams and athletes. He launched the Elaine Shuster Foundation as a way to honor the memory of his late mother, who was a longtime educator and D.C.-area native. The nonprofit supports a number of educational initiatives in and around Maryland.
