CU Night at the Preds Returns on Jan. 17


The Cumberland University Alumni Association and the Nashville Predators are teaming up again for the Second Annual "Cumberland University Night with the Nashville Predators" on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2009 as the Preds square off against the Atlanta Thrashers, CU Alumni Relations Officer Justin Bradford recently announced.

"We're excited to announce the return of Cumberland University Night with the Predators, as last year's event was among the most popular ever hosted by the Alumni Association," Bradford said. "Alumni, their families and friends of the University had a great time at the game, and we expect tickets for Cumberland University Night to find their way into plenty of stockings during the holiday season."

The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. but, Bradford noted, the University will again host a special, pre-game reception for alumni and friends in attendance. The exclusive pre-game reception will begin at the Sommet Center at 5 p.m. and will include a full dinner buffet and a raffle -- with prizes slated to include Predators jerseys, apparel and autographed memorabilia. All children in attendance will receive a free youth jersey courtesy of First Tennessee.

Tickets for "Cumberland University Night with the Nashville Predators" are $40 each. The ticket price includes admission to the game, the exclusive pre-game reception and all taxes and service charges. Fans participating in the event will be seated together in Sections 318 and 319, which are located in the Shoot-Twice Mezzanine.

"These are great seats located in the Family Fun Zone. They're about the same distance from the ice as Club Level seating," Bradford noted. "In addition to the special pre-game reception, guests who attend as part of Cumberland University Night will realize a savings of $23 off the gate ticket rate."
