Hockey Tonk Gala a Smash

Ditching their usual skates, sticks and helmets for decidedly more southern attire, the Nashville Predators players trotted out cowboy boots, oversized belt buckles and ten-gallon hats at Wednesday night’s Hockey Tonk Gala. The Gala – an annual event to raise money for the Nashville Predators Foundation – boasted more than 700 attendees and raised funds in excess of $100,000 through donations and silent auction bids.

Predators players, coaches, management and staff stepped out in their finest Western attire, which included, but was not limited to, Stetsons, Wranglers, plaid shirts and even a bolo tie or two. Those in attendance had the opportunity to mix and mingle with some of their favorite players. They also had the chance to bid on one-of-a-kind merchandise and experiences. Silent auction highlights included signed Olympic jerseys from all six of the Predators representing the team at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and a West Coast road trip with the team.

Prior to the main event, the Predators hosted a private VIP party in the newly renamed Patrón Platinum Club located on the suite level. The intimate gathering featured several players serving as dealers at black jack tables set up around the club.

Funds raised from the evening went to benefit the Nashville Predators Foundation which in turn will be given out in grants to charities in the Middle Tennessee community next month.

The Nashville Predators Foundation strives to meet the educational, social, health and cultural needs of the community by offering unique resources and financial support to local youth-oriented organizations. The Foundation has awarded more than $2.0 million in financial grants and donations.
