NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Dec. 11, 2023) – Following the devastating tornadoes that tore through Middle Tennessee this past Saturday, the Nashville Predators and affiliated entities including SS&E and F&M Bank Arena, are taking immediate action to support relief efforts throughout Montgomery, Sumner, Davidson and surrounding counties.
“We were heartbroken to learn of the loss of life, the displaced families and all the damage that came to Middle Tennessee this past weekend because of the tornadoes,” Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena Chief Executive Officer Sean Henry said. “As our community looks to clean up from the storms, we are using our home game and event dates at Bridgestone Arena and F&M Bank Arena while dedicating resources to help those in need. We encourage others to assist where they can, rallying around those negatively impacted – let’s stand #smashvillestrong everyone.”
During the game tomorrow, a portion of the proceeds from the Predators Foundation’s silent auction will benefit tornado relief efforts. To view the auction items, fans can visit the Foundation area (outside of Section 106/107) or text “PREDS” to 76278. Fans can also donate by visiting www.nashvillepredators.com/donate.
