NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In the spirit of the holiday season, hundreds of local children have benefited throughout the 2015 season as recipients of Titans tickets donated by players as part of the team's charity ticket purchase program.
Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, cornerback Jason McCourty, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey and safeties Michael Griffin and Da'Norris Searcy each purchased 25 season tickets to all 10 Titans home games, handing them out to those who might not otherwise be able to attend a game at Nissan Stadium.
The fortunate recipients came from local churches, community centers, youth programs, domestic violence agencies, Special Olympics, metro schools, and school teachers from around the greater Nashville area.
"Our player charity ticket program is a wonderful opportunity to recognize and reward various individual groups and organizations throughout the community that would not otherwise be able to go to a Titans game," Titans Director of Community Relations Tina Tuggle said. "This is yet another example of how our players embrace making a difference in our local community."
While the team's charity ticket purchase program became official in 2014, Titans players have long donated tickets in similar fashion since the team arrived to Tennessee in 1997.
