Love a good glass of wine? Better yet, love a good glass of wine and hockey? Even better- a good glass of wine, hockey, AND a chance to interact with the players, coaches, and such luminaries as Pete Weber and Terry Crisp? Then you need to be at the Predators Foundation Wine Festival and Tasting on Wednesday, March 31st from 6-10 at the Bridgestone Arena. Over 175 different wines are available to satisfy the palates of the most discriminating oeneophiles. For less sophisticated people like me, there are ample selections of beer and liquors. Heavy hor d'ooeuvres are also served.
Perhaps the best part of the evening is the wonderful silent auction items that are available. Everything from vacation packages, hockey and sports memorabilia, to entertainment and dining packages are offered. The proceeds of the evening benefit the Nashville Predators Foundation.
While this is a great evening to meet players, coaches, and other fans as well as sip some fine wines and bid on great auction items, the real star of the event is the Predators Foundation. This year, the Foundation will give over $300,000 to charitable enterprises in Middle Tennessee. The Foundation has been active in the betterment of the lives of people in this area since the team has been here, and every year has increased their involvement in our community. It doesn't happen without your support, however.
So come out to a great evening of entertainment and fun, but more importantly, come out to support a wonderful organization that does so much for our community. Tickets can be purchased on line at www.nashvillepredators.com/wine or by calling 770-2331.
