-Program generates more than $220,000 over eight seasons-
In conjunction with DEX Imaging & Mailing, the Nashville Predators Foundation today presented $14,500 to area charities as part of the DEX Score & Win program, an annual initiative of rewarding goals and wins by the Nashville Predators while lending financial support to area charitable and community service organizations.
“The DEX Score and Win Program continues to be a great success for the Predators and the charities it impacts each season,” Director of Community Relations Rebecca King said. “Even in a shortened season we were able to raise $14,500, which goes towards helping several organizations throughout our community that rely on these types of donations year-in and year-out. We are proud that our players, head coach Barry Trotz, General Manager David Poile and DEX continue to support this initiative and we look forward to another successful season in 2013-14.”
For the eighth season, DEX Imaging & Mailing, official corporate partner of the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena, joined forces with the Predators Foundation to reward every goal scored and every win recorded by a Predators’ goaltender through the regular season with a donation to a designated Nashville-area charity.
With this season’s total of $14,500, the program has now generated more than $220,000 to area charitable and community service organizations. Players were randomly paired with one of 10 Nashville area charitable or community service organizations; for every goal scored by a forward or win recorded by a goaltender, DEX contributed $100. The contribution was $150 for goals scored by a defenseman and a $200 bonus was awarded for hat tricks and shutouts.
Additionally, Head Coach Barry Trotz continued his commitment to My Friend’s House with a donation of $500 for every Predators’ regular season win. He began the program during the Predators’ inaugural season and has now donated nearly $260,000 to My Friend’s House. General Manager David Poile has donated $100 for every Predators’ regular season win over the past three seasons to each of three organizations: Operation Homefront, Peterson Foundation for Parkinson’s and USA Hockey.
