Amateur hockey players raise money for Metro Animal Control

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Amateur hockey players squared off on Sunday to raise money for the Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control.

The Paw Classic, which was held at Bridgestone Arena, involved dozens of players who donated $110 to play in the game.

People who came to watch were encouraged to bring blankets, food, and treats for the shelter animals.

The event was also a chance to raise awareness about animal adoptions ahead of the holiday season.

“It’s opened up a new revenue stream for them to spread the word about these wonderful pets down at the shelter who need a second chance,” explained Jeff Medolla, the tournament director. 

The event was free to the public.

All the money raised will go directly to the Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control.
