NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Nashville Predators teamed up with sponsors Thursday to help out the victims of the deadly tornado outbreak in Oklahoma.

The Predators collected donations in front of the Bridgestone Arena from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"All of us here at Bridgestone Arena and the Nashville Predators saw the images on TV and were moved to do something," David Kells of the Bridgestone Arena said.

Attendees who donated $25 or more were entered into a drawing for autographed pucks, Preds preseason ticket vouchers, Nashville Sounds tickets and more.

Beginning at 11 a.m. three Nashville food trucks, Wrapper's Delight, Yayo's OMG and Cupcake Collection, were on site for lunch. The trucks gave 25% of their proceeds to the Oklahoma relief fund.

Donations can also be made on the Nashville Predators' Web site or by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
