In a ceremonial check presentation held in Nissan Atrium at Bridgestone Arena, 145 Nashville and Middle Tennessee-based community service and charitable organizations received grants from the Nashville Predators Foundation. The largest one-time donation in Foundation history, $675,962, was distributed, marking the 13th consecutive year that they have surpassed the previous year's donation.
"This is the greatest celebration of the year for the Predators Foundation," said Preds Senior Director of Community Relations Rebecca King. "This room is filled with the most giving and passionate people, who are working so hard for their organizations, and we're extremely proud to support their efforts."
Among the many in attendance was Tracy Kujawa, founder of grant-recipient Angel Heart Farm, which serves children battling life-threatening illnesses using equine assisted therapy. Fighting back tears, she spoke to the Foundation's support of their programs.
