Nashville's hockey community will be stepping up to provide support for Middle Tennessee Flood Relief on Monday, June 7th, with a "Tweetup" from 6-9:00 p.m. at the Tin Roof on Demonbreum in Nashville. A Tweetup is basically a gathering of people who share a common interest and normally interact on Twitter, but any and all hockey fans are welcome.
There will be a 50/50 raffle, and also some incredible hockey merchandise put up for bid on eBay, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee Flood Relief program. Dani Muccio (@Dani3boyz on Twitter, who now works on social media for the New York Islanders) has been in touch with several NHL teams, and is striking gold! This way, even if you're not here in Nashville you can help out the cause, by bidding on these awesome items:
- A Washington Capitals hat, signed by Alex Ovechkin
- A Carolina Hurricanes jersey, signed by Rod Brind'Amour
More details about the memorabilia will be forthcoming, as the Nashville Predators and several other NHL teams will also be providing items for auction.
In the meantime, you can head over to the invitation and let us know you'll be there!
Mark Willoughby, the Nashville blogger behind The View From 111, has been the driving force behind this event, which will provide a great opportunity for Predators fans to get together and not just watch some hockey, but help with the flood relief efforts in Middle Tennessee at the same time.
