Every week throughout Bridgestone Arena's Anniversary Season, we will celebrate the Arena's 15 year partnership with the Middle Tennessee community.
15th Anniversary Reflections: Partnering With The Community
From its inception, the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena have made a commitment to fulfilling an important role in local community. To that end, The Nashville Predators Foundation strives to meet the educational, social, health and cultural needs of our community by offering unique resources and financial support to local youth-oriented organizations. Additionally, the Preds and Arena have become actively involved in educational related causes through programs like Hockey Rules & Street Pride which promote physical eduation and Teacher of the Month, In-School Reading appearances & PIPER (Predators Incentive Program for Education and Rewards presented by Jackson National Life Insurance Company) initiatives to promote educational achievements.
