The Suns issued a press release announcing their annual open practice for the public. This year, the team will collect donations of gently used Halloween costumes, benefitting New Pathways for Youth (formerly known as Phoenix Youth at Risk).
"In honor of the Suns home opener on Halloween night," the release states, as relayed by the East Valley Tribune this morning. "The team is encouraging fans to donate new or gently-used Halloween costumes, benefiting the children at New Pathways for Youth, formally known as Phoenix Youth at Risk. Fans who donate will be entered into a raffle to win autographed Suns items."
Festivities begin at 10:00am with entertainment from the Suns Gorilla, Dancers, Verve Sol Patrol and Solar Squad. A live scrimmage will begin at 11:30am. After the scrimmage, many of the Suns will stay on the court to meet fans.
