VU concessionaire to donate game profits

by Rocket

Sodexho Sports and Leisure, the exclusive concessionaire for all Vanderbilt Athletic events, announced Wednesday evening that it is donating 100% of its profits from the Louisville baseball game to the Nashville chapter of the Red Cross. The word came on the heels of a declaration by Vanderbilt Vice Chancellor David Williams that next Tuesday's game would be dedicated to Middle Tennessee's flood victims.

"Sodexho wants to be a good neighbor and contribute to our mid-state's recovery," said Daphe Newsom, General Manager of Vanderbilt Concessions. "We are delighted to be a part of this worthy effort."

All remaining tickets to the Louisville game, approximately 1,300 as of Wednesday, will be given away free of charge with monetary donations to the Nashville Red Cross and/or food and water donations to Second Harvest Food Bank strongly encouraged to all attendees. University officials are working on to add some special features to the game, which is a rematch of last year's NCAA Regional final.
