Nashville, Tenn. (February 2, 2009) – The Nashville Predators and the Metropolitan Government of Nashville have announced Tuesday, February 24 as Metro Employee Appreciation Night at the Sommet Center. Both staffs have been working together to provide an exclusive night for all Metro-Nashville employees in appreciation for their hard work.
“We are proud to support Metro-Nashville employees by offering them this ticketing discount,” Predators President of Business Operations Ed Lang said. “After all the encouragement they have given us over the past 11 seasons, it was only a natural progression for us to give back to those who have given so much to this city.”
Metro employees are eligible to purchase $20 Upper Bowl tickets (reg. $38) and $51 Lower Bowl tickets (reg. $82) for the February 24 match up with the Chicago Blackhawks—with the first two-hundred individuals purchasing tickets receiving a free Predators t-shirt. Tickets are available online through a special link distributed by Metro Human Resources or by showing a Metro ID at the Sommet Center Box Office. Orders are filled first come, first served for the best-available seats.
All Metro-Nashville employees will be automatically entered in a drawing to win Zamboni rides, Penalty Box visits and chances to participate in on-ice activities during the game. Additionally, Metro Police and Fire Departments are scheduled to perform the National Anthem and Color Guard.
“This is a wonderful opportunity given by the Nashville Predators. I appreciate their recognition of Metro employees – they are the people who keep our city safe, healthy and a great place to live,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said. “I hope it’s a night that many can enjoy.”
