2014 Nashville Predators Foundation Wine Tasting

2014 Nashville Predators Foundation Wine Tasting


   
             I recently attended the Nashville Predators Foundation Wine Tasting at The Bridgestone Arena and had a great time surrounded by so much good wine and food! Who knew so many bottles of wine could be open under one roof!! The festival featured more than 225 high-end wines, beer and spirits tasting and an extensive silent auction. The event also includes culinary delicacies from local restaurants, a complimentary Riedel glass (a very nice glass to add to my collection!) and photo opportunities with Predators mascot GNASH.

              All proceeds benefit the Nashville Predators Foundation. This year, the Foundation will award more than $400,000 in grants to local charities and more than $150,000 to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt through the 365 Pediatric Cancer Research Fund. Since its inception in 1998, the Foundation has award more than $4 million in financial grants and donations and has provided in-kind donations, including memorabilia and tickets, to many organizations and fund-raising events.

          For more information or to be in the know for next year's Wine Tasting, visit nashvillepredators.com/wine.  Attendees must be 21 years of age or older.

Check out some of the sights from this years event. I hope it encourages you to support the Nashville Predators Foundation for this event next year!
