Friday's notes: A little dinner, a little golf, a lot of money raised

This is what they're playing for this morning at the Celebrity Golf Classic to benefit Peterson for Parkinson's and the Nashville Predators Foundation.

The fundraising continues this morning in Nashville with a celebrity golf event following up last evening's dinner & silent auction, an event which brought in a lot of money for a good cause, and helped heal a few hearts, too.

For recaps of last night's event, see Preds On The GlassSmashville 24/7Inside Smashville, and Predators Insider.

But for now, follow after the jump for your morning hockey news...

While reading this morning, listen in as Pete Weber joined Fan 590 in Toronto yesterday:
