NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Given the recent developments concerning the COVID-19 outbreak and recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the America’s Best Sports City Gives Back event scheduled for March 25 at Topgolf has been cancelled, the Nashville Sports Council announced Monday.

“Ensuring the health and well-being of the general public is our top priority,” Nashville Sports Council President/CEO Scott Ramsey said. “Obviously, we’re disappointed this event has again been impacted by something out of our control, but we are grateful relief efforts can continue through social media with our city’s Best Sports Fans.”

Five of Nashville’s Best Sports Fan finalists continue to represent and raise money for local relief organizations in the wake of the March 2-3 tornado outbreak. Initially launched as an initiative to find the city’s Best Sports Fan, efforts will now focus on helping the America’s Best Sports City and surrounding areas recover from the recent string of severe weather.

Vincent Love and Lorrita Turnley are raising money for Gideon’s Army, Jacob Deveral and Adam McMillan are raising money for the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and Balin Ali is representing Music City Inc.
