Great stuff. Sports teams ought to put something back into the community through programs like these. Hats off to another classy act from a great organization

This year’s donation is a result of grants, fundraising efforts and in-kind donations by the Nashville Predators, including the Nashville Predators’ We Care for Kids game nights held this past season. On these nights, a portion of every single-game ticket sold and 100 percent of the silent-auction proceeds were donated back to Children’s Hospital. Donations were also collected at all Bridgestone Arena entrances before the games and throughout the building during those games.
Im sure it was the Preds Foundation, a non-taxpaying charity itself, that made the donation....most of the money wasnt the teams in the first place, they just collected it... but still very impressive..
