“While we’re an organization that relies on community support, we’re always looking for ways, big or small, to impact our community beyond sports,” Scott Ramsey, President & CEO of the Nashville Sports Council said. “Instead of allowing critical PPE like masks to sit in storage, we felt it was best to immediately distribute them across these local organizations.
“We look forward to sports returning to a healthy Music City in the near future.”
The Nashville Sports Council remains committed to helping spur Nashville’s local economy and well-being through various initiatives.
