Nashville, Tenn. (December 21, 2021) – The Nashville Predators Foundation empowered by SmileDirectClub partnered with Jack Daniel’s this holiday season to sell barrels from the Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree in Nashville. The barrels, which are signed by Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller and customized with laser engraving, sold out in a few hours and raised over $17,000 for the Predators Foundation and Operation Ride Home.
“The Nashville Predators Foundation is grateful for the ongoing support of Jack Daniel’s,” said Rebecca King, Vice President of Community Relations for the Nashville Predators. “The opportunity to sell the barrels from the Jack Daniel’s Christmas tree was a unique item for our fans to purchase. Fans have seen the tree display for many weeks and now they get to take home a piece of it while donating between two wonderful causes – Operation Ride Home and the Preds Foundation. The holidays are a little merrier with this partnership!”
