Predators game to benefit childhood cancer program

The Nashville Predators will once again join the fight against childhood cancer when they hit the ice Thursday, Oct. 27.

A portion of the proceeds from the Predators game against the Tampa Bay Lightning will benefit the Vanderbilt Childhood Cancer Program. A silent auction during the 7 p.m. game at Bridgestone Arena also will benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

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.
