NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Brent Peterson, the former head coach for the Nashville Predators, is hosting a celebrity golf tournament this Monday.

While the golf tournament at Vanderbilt Legends Club is sold out, there’s still a chance to give and be a part of the benefit at a party Tuesday night.

Both events will give back the Predators Foundation and Peterson Foundation for Parkinson’s.

“These people that come out and support us are great people because there are so many different charities they can support… It’s nice to see they come out and support us,” Peterson told News 2.

The party Tuesday night at Bridgestone Arena, called Petey’s Preds Party, still has tickets available. It will be held from 6 until 9:30 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.

News 2’s Bob Mueller spoke to Brent Peterson on Thursday. Watch the video above for his full interview.

Peterson has been an advocate for Parkinson’s disease since his diagnosis in 2003. He underwent surgery as part of his treatment in 2011, saying the surgery saved his life.
