The jersey and signed pucks with the cherry blossom design will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting the Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation. The auction starts online on April 2 at 12 p.m.. 

Shirts and hats with the design will also be available for purchase at Team Stores and at the D.C. Sports Cherry Blossom pop-up store on F St and 7th St NW.
