Before the Nashville Predators take to the ice with the start of Training Camp next week, they’ll support a worthy cause for a member of the Preds family, and you can too.
Petey’s Preds Party, highlighted by entertainment from America’s Got Talent winner and Las Vegas headliner Terry Fator, is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 14 at Bridgestone Arena. The fifth annual First Tennessee Brent Peterson Golf Classic, presented by Franklin American Mortgage Company, is set for Tuesday, Sept. 15 at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn.
The two days of events are in support of former Predators Associate Coach and current Radio Color Analyst, Brent Peterson, and his Peterson Foundation for Parkinson’s, as well as the Nashville Predators Foundation. The Peterson Foundation for Parkinson’s was formed in 2009 after Peterson was diagnosed with the disease, with the goal of helping people affected by Parkinson’s and raising funds to support Parkinson’s research as well as patient and caregiver support activities.
“The First Tennessee Brent Peterson Golf Classic and Petey’s Preds Party presented by Franklin American Mortgage has become the marquee event to start the hockey season,” Predators Manager of Community Relations Kristen Finch said. “Preds players are in town and will be attending dinner and golfing the next day along with other celebrities from the Nashville community and entertainment world. Every year, this event has been a jump start to our fundraising initiatives throughout the season.”
With the upcoming Petey’s Party and Golf Classic, it’s easy for Preds fans to get involved. Monday night’s Party, includes entertainment from Fator, dinner, an open bar, silent and live auctions, as well as the chance to mingle with Preds players and personalities.
Tuesday’s Golf Classic offers morning and afternoon flights of golf with Preds players and celebrities part of the foursomes.
