GEORGETOWN -- A veritable dream team of professional athletes from the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals, and Washington Capitals joined together on Monday, in support of the Elaine Shuster Foundation's charitable kickoff celebration.

Co-hosted by Redskins Pro Bowl linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and former Redskins Pro Bowl cornerback Shawn Springs, the early evening benefit was held inside the recently remodeled interior of Tony and Joe's Seafood Place on the Georgetown waterfront and sported a warm 'Heart of Gold' theme.

A long list of household names, including Nats third baseman/left fielder Ryan Zimmerman and Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, among many others, also turned out for the occasion, which was organized by the nonprofit's founder, Eric Shuster.

Shuster, who the Washington Post's sports blog famously labeled "possibly the most powerful man in D.C. Sports", has the enviable job of being 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 the state of Maryland.

Beyond the unique opportunity to mix-and-mingle with some of Washington's top athletes, Monday's benefit also boasted both live and silent auctions, which featured a variety of one-of-a-kind sports memorabilia.

A heart-warming affair to be sure.
