Local Causes that Benefit from the Nashville Preds

The Preds Foundation

Each season the team’s charitable arm, the Nashville Predators Foundation, helps dozens of worthy local causes through events, fundraising, and community partnerships. Often, the organizations are connected to the team through players or staff—like the Petey’s Preds Party and Golf Tournament, where the team supports current broadcaster and former coach Brent Peterson’s efforts to raise funds for Parkinson’s disease research.

They also give four worthy nonprofits a season-long spotlight each year, shining a light on worthy local causes like underprivileged children, or struggling veterans. For 2017-18 those causes will be Greenhouse Ministries, Keys 4 A Cure, Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue, and the Women’s Survivors Alliance.

The Preds and the Military

The Predators’ close relationship with the military is the perfect homage to Nashville’s Volunteer history. The team has an extremely generous veteran-ticket program, often providing service members and their families tickets to home games at low or no cost. Every game, the team also highlights a currently serving military member in attendance, giving fans and players alike the chance to thank all service personnel. And, this summer, the team and Nashville’s local Army National Guard aviation unit solidified their relationship, with the Preds allowing their logo to be painted on the unit’s Blackhawk helicopters.
