Nashville Predators Present $131,000 to Monroe Carell Jr. Children\'s Hospital at Vanderbilt

Nashville, Tenn. (June 11, 2013) – Nashville Predators forward Matt Halischuk and President/Chief Operating Officer Sean Henry presented a check for $131,000 to officials of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt today.

This is the Nashville Predators fifth donation to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, raising more than $700,000 for the Hospital and its programs over the past five years. The largest portion of this year’s donation ($104,000) will be used towards a Nashville Predators endowed pediatric cancer research fund, with the remaining donation supporting a number of other programs that benefit Children’s Hospital patients including a grant to fund the Collaborative Consulting Teams, who work with students with chronic illness and their teachers; Flashes of Hope; the Weber’s Warriors suite; and a Friends in Fashion special event.

The donation is a result of this season’s fundraising efforts by the Nashville Predators including Nashville Predators Care for Kids nights, a Nashville Predators Alumni game, an SPHL preseason contest between the Knoxville Ice Bears and the Huntsville Havoc and more. Additionally, throughout the season the Nashville Predators donate tickets for families, autographed memorabilia for fundraising events, provide player and Gnash visits and participate in We Care for Kids initiatives.

“With each passing season, our relationship with Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt continues to grow,” Nashville Predators President Sean Henry said. “With this year’s donation, we have donated more than $700,000 to Children’s Hospital and its programs over the last five years, helping families receive the care they desperately need. Donations like this would not be possible without the unwavering support of our players, fans and staff. ”

“We are overwhelmed by the Nashville Predators generosity,” Chief Executive Officer for Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt Luke Gregory said. “Children’s Hospital is committed to identifying cures and better treatments for childhood cancer, and this donation will certainly have a positive impact in this regard.”

Vanderbilt and the Predators first became strategic partners when they joined forces in 2008, with Vanderbilt signing on as the Predators integrated health care provider. Vanderbilt has long been a prominent fixture within the community and has been recognized for its continued medical excellence and efforts to help its young patients. The Nashville Predators Pediatric Cancer Research Fund is an endowed fund created in 2010 as a way for the Predators to give back to patients in need at Children’s Hospital.

Accepting the donation on behalf of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt are Dr. John W. Brock III, Monroe Carell Jr. Professor, Director of the Division of Pediatric Urology and Surgeon-in-Chief at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and Dr. Deb Friedman, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, E. Bronson Ingram Chair in Pediatric Oncology, Leader of Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center Cancer Control and Prevention Program and Director of Division of Hematology-Oncology at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
