Photos from flood relief game

by Barca Blog

Let's take one more look back at the flood relief effort by the Nashville community at Vanderbilt's baseball game on Tuesday.

The game raised over $25,000 to benefit the Nashville chapter of the American Red Cross. Just an amazing show of support by the Commodore Nation!

How did we reach that impressive total?

*Vanderbilt coaches, staff, and former players collected donations from fans at the front gates of the stadium

*Sodexo concessions and the Vanderbilt Bookstore contributed their sales profits

*Maggie Corbin and daughter Hannah baked and sold cupcakes

*A silent auction was held with the following items:
-Vanderbilt Baseball USA-themed jersey signed by entire team

-Package of autographed photos and record of Lady Antebellum

-Autographed golf flag by Brandt Snedeker

-Autographed photo of flooded Hawkins Field signed by the entire team

-Replica Chicago Bears helmet signed by Chris Williams, Jay Cutler, and Earl Bennett
*Louisville, the Commodores' opponent, generously made a monetary donation

Also, fans brought in food items and household goods to give to Second Harvest Food Bank and Hands on Nashville

It truly was an incredible night to give back to Nashville. A big, big thanks to everyone who pitched in to help those in need.

Of course, the work is never done and people in Middle Tennessee still need assistance. If you'd like to help, please visit this link to support the Red Cross.
