The Nashville Predators Foundation Donates $405,000 To Area Organizations

On Monday afternoon, the Nashville Predators Foundation distributed record 113 grants, totaling $405,000 to Nashville and Middle Tennessee-based community service and charitable organizations, during a ceremony at Bridgestone Arena. The distribution was the largest in Foundation history, which speaks to the commitment of the Predators and their staff during a shortened 2012-13 season.

“To raise a record $405,000 for local charities in a shortened season is a true testament to our fans, players and staff,” Nashville Predators President and Chief Operating Officer Sean Henry said. “Without their dedication and loyalty to our annual events, this largest donation in franchise history would not be possible.”

The day began as staff members, parents and children from the organizations enjoyed tours of Bridgestone Arena and the Predators facilities, played games on the concourse, broomball on the Bridgestone Arena ice and visits from Preds goaltender Pekka Rinne and Gnash.

“The Preds Foundation has been an integral part in supporting our programs year-in and year-out,” Tennessee Special Olympics Chief Development Officer Adam Germek said. “Everything from our summer games, to our healthy athletes program and the DEX Score and Win Program. We’ve just been having a blast this year and the support we’ve received from the Nashville Predators has been amazing.”

Monday marked 15th grant distribution by the Predators Foundation. Since its inception in 1998, the Foundation has awarded more than $3.5 million in financial grants to Nashville and Middle Tennessee community service and charitable organizations. With support of season ticket holders, the Smashville faithful and the local community, the Preds Foundation was able to put more than $1 million back into the community during the 2012-13 season.

“Thanks to the support and generosity of Smashville, youth from Middle Tennessee and across the state will continue to benefit from the funding that the Nashville Predators put back into the community each and every season,” Henry said.
