Nashville, Tenn. (May 4, 2017) - The Nashville Predators Foundation has announced today that all proceeds raised from the Smash Car on the Bridgestone Arena plaza, as well as the Foundation's online auction during Friday's Round Two, Game Five celebration when the Predators travel west to take on the St. Louis Blues will be donated to assist in the city's flood relief efforts.
"It was just seven years ago this week that our own city experienced life-altering flooding that left our city with immense damage," Nashville Predators Foundation Chairman Gerry Helper said. "The volunteer state, with some much-appreciated support and assistance from the NHL community, helped rebuild Nashville and is the reason why Bridgestone Arena is here today."
"Smashville's passion for the Predators is heightened by this great playoff match and gives us the opportunity to help the St. Louis Blues in their fundraising efforts to assist those that are affected by the flooding," Nashville Predators President and CEO Sean Henry said. "On the ice we are adversaries, but off the ice, we are partners on so many fronts, and we hope the funds generated through our fans' generosity can help the Blues' community as they recover from the devastation caused."
Fans will have the opportunity to bid on numerous auction items, including two tickets in the Owner's Suite for Luke Bryan's Saturday night concert and a suite for both a home and away game during the 2017-18 regular season against St. Louis. All proceeds from Friday evening's Blues Smash Car will also be donated to flood relief efforts, so stop by the Bridgestone Arena plaza to support the Preds on the road and the city of St. Louis all in one swing.
The Nashville Predators Foundation's online auction is now live. Visit the Predators App or text PREDS to 52182 to see all the items and place your bids.
