Nashville Predators Sponsor Red Cross Blood Drive

Portion of Ticket Sales Benefits the Nashville Chapter

Catch the Nashville Predators in action, donate blood and help support the Nashville Area Chapter of the American Red Cross all in one night. How’s that for a Hat Trick?

The Nashville Predators are sponsoring an American Red Cross blood drive and giving a portion of ticket sales for the Dec. 23 game against the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Area Chapter.

Blood donors won’t have to worry about missing any action on the ice while giving blood. Flat-screen television sets will be in place in the donation area. Donors may even forget about the game when the Nashville Predators Ice Girls skate in to pose for photos.

All fans invited to give blood on Thursday, Dec. 23, 3 - 8 p.m. in the Bridgestone Arena meeting rooms. All donors arriving after 5 p.m. must have a ticket to that evening’s game. To schedule a blood donation appointment, log on to and enter sponsor code: Preds19. Walk-ins are also welcome.

All presenting blood donors receive a free ticket to a future hockey game and may also enter to win a VIP Hockey Package, which includes four lower level tickets to the Predators game on Sunday, Jan. 2 (5 p.m. start) against the Columbus Blue Jackets and a post game meet and greet for four people with a Predators player.

The Predators are donating $10 from every ticket sold for the Dec. 23 game, only through the American Red Cross link, to the Nashville Area Chapter of the American Red Cross. To purchase your ticket, visit
