As you know, the Phoenix Suns and your friendly neighborhood Suns blog have partnered up to send underprivileged kids to a Suns game on Saturday, November 14, 2015.
FINAL DAY TO DONATE!
As of Friday, we were sitting at 599 tickets donated by Bright Side readers. That's a hell of a lot of tickets, folks, but we can still do more!
Update: as of Saturday afternoon, we're at 609 tickets. Donate Now! LAST CHANCE!
We have to have a cutoff. Sunday night is the deadline. If you've been procrastinating, nows the time to stop doing that.
Pregame Q and A
Note: there's still room for the pregame meetup with Suns GM Ryan McDonough. Anyone who donates 10 tickets gets their own pair of lower-bowl tickets and an invite for a Q and A with McD. It's in a private conference room, and only for those big donators. Ask him anything you want! All you need to do is donate.
These underprivileged kids will be identified by Suns charities and community service groups, made up primarily of kids who live in challenging areas and/or whose families don't have the kind of money it takes to have a night out at a Suns game. That's probably 90% of the kids in this city, actually.
Pat yourself on the back!
I want to thank everyone who has donated to date. You get it. You can imagine a couple of sections dedicated just to kids representing BSotS.
You know who you are. Pat yourself on the back in the comments section. Let us all know who you are - I'd love to see every donator leave a comment so we can see the volume of those who gave their time (a couple minutes) and money to the cause.
Keep it going
If you want to donate, or donate again, go right ahead. EVERY DOLLAR goes toward ticket purchases. Every $16 sends one more kid to the game.
