Hockey Fights Cancer

When the Nashville Predators hit the ice on March 12, you can be credited with an assist when it comes to childhood cancer.

A portion of the proceeds from the Predators game against the Colorado Avalanche will benefit the Nashville Predators Pediatric Cancer Research Fund at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. A silent auction during the 7 p.m. game at Bridgestone Arena also will benefit Children’s Hospital.

Last season, the Predators raised $125,000 for Children’s Hospital, endowing the cancer research fund and supporting other programs. This season they are expanding their efforts by allowing hockey fans to donate all season at www.nashvillepredators.com/beatcancer. In addition, a bone marrow donor registration drive held during the game can help save lives.

Enjoy great Predators action while providing greater hope for a cure. To purchase tickets for the March 12 game, visit www.nashvillepredators.com/vanderbilt and use the offer code “Vanderbilt.”
