Food donation caps off SEC Tournament at Bridgestone Arena

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) held its 2021 Men’s Basketball Tournament at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville last weekend, hosting COVID-restricted crowds of 3,400 fans. The four-day tournament was the first major event over the past year other than recent Nashville Predators NHL games to be held at the arena, where Delaware North Sportservice provides concessions and retail services.

The Predators and their team foundation have worked with Room In The Inn, an integral part of the community, for years as they strive “to provide programs that emphasize human development and recovery through education, self-help and work, centered in community and long-term support for those who call the streets of Nashville home.”
