Nashville Predators game to benefit Children’s Hospital

Nashville Predators game to benefit Children’s Hospital

When the Nashville Predators hit the ice at Bridgestone Arena March 10, fans can score an assist when it comes to childhood cancer.

A portion of the ticket sales from the Predators game against the Detroit Red Wings will benefit the Nashville Predators Pediatric Cancer Research Fund at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. A silent auction and money collected at all main doors during the 7 p.m. game also will benefit the fund.

Last season, the Predators provided $181,000 in support to Children's Hospital, adding to the endowed pediatric cancer research fund they created in 2010 and supporting other programs. This season they are once again allowing hockey fans to support their efforts all season at http://www.nashvillepredators.com/beatcancer.

In addition, a bone marrow donor registration drive will be held during the game and a Children’s Hospital cancer survivor, Ashley Scott, will serve as the child ambassador and “Mayor of Smashville” for the night.
