After the jump, please see a special message about a member of the Nashville hockey community that can use your help...
The following arrived in my inbox from the director of hockey at Centennial Sportsplex in Nashville:
A fellow member of our Sportsplex Adult Hockey League family is in need of help. Brad Winfrey plays in our 'A' League. His son recently had a tumor removed from his brain. Test are not back at this time to determine if the tumor is cancerous. As you can imagine medical cost are starting to mount. A benefit concert has been organized at Tin Roof on Demonbreun this Friday starting at 5:00p. If you have a chance to stop by Friday night please do. Brad could really use our support and our prayers. Below is the email that was sent to me and a list of all the different artist that will be there.
