Recently, the Nashville Predators Foundation hosted their sixth annual Wine Festival and Tasting over the ice of Bridgestone Arena. The festival played host to more than 1000 guests and featured culinary delicacies by Fish & Co Restaurant and Raw Bar and Watermark Restaurant, tasting from close to 200 higher-end wines, Anheuser-Busch and spirits tasting and an extensive silent auction.
A VIP Dinner and Tasting was hosted in the Patrón Platinum Club by Corey Beck, Director of Winemaking of Francis Ford Coppola Winery. The VIP Dinner and Tasting featured a five-course dinner with wine pairing and hand-crafted wines from Francis Ford Coppola Winery.
All proceeds from the event benefitted the Nashville Predators Foundation. Established in 1998, the 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. Through several fundraisers held throughout the year, the Predators Foundation has awarded close to $3 million to Nashville and Middle Tennessee area charities and community service organizations since its creation and a record $325,000 this year to Nashville area organizations. Additionally, the foundation has provided in-kind donations, including memorabilia and tickets, to many organizations and fund-raising events.
