The Nashville Predators Foundation and DEX Imaging and Mailing have teamed up to announce the DEX Score and Win Program. Every time a Predator scores a goal or records a goaltending win, DEX will make a donation to the Predators Foundation that will be given to one of 10 Middle Tennessee charities at the conclusion of the 2005-06 season.
Through the DEX Score and Win Program, Predators players have been paired up to score and win on behalf of 10 area charitable/community service organizations. Beginning with last Sunday's game against Anaheim, DEX will make a contribution to the Predators Foundation in recognition of every goal scored and every win recorded by a goaltender. At the conclusion of the season, the Predators Foundation and DEX will then make individual contributions to designated charities.
For every goal scored by a forward or a win by a goaltender, DEX will contribute $100. The contribution will be $150 for goals scored by a defenseman and there is a $200 bonus for hat tricks and shutouts.
"We greatly appreciate that DEX shares our commitment to the community and desire to link contributions to individual achievements," said Predators Senior VP of Communications and Development Gerry Helper. "Now, in addition to the team and fans benefiting from every goal and win, 10 very worthy charities that focus efforts on Middle Tennessee youth, will benefit directly and will be cheering for their respective players throughout the remainder of the season."
"The relationship that DEX and the Predators have extends beyond business in that both organizations have common goals in supporting our local community," said DEX General Manager Mark Blaze. "The Predators Foundation and DEX's commitment to the community mirror each other in this goal and therefore seemed a perfect opportunity to further our partnership."
DEX Imaging and Mailing provides premier office systems and service support in the Southeast and is the Official Office Equipment Provider of the Predators.
