Cut down the nets! Bright Side Night gives you one more reason to participate

New, comments

We understand you should get something out of your donation to Bright Side Night. How about floor access and cutting down the net after Suns vs. Pelicans?

Only TWO days left to donate!

At some point, we have to stop taking donations so we can finalize the tickets and promotions ahead of Sunday’s second-annual Bright Side Night on Sunday at 6:30 PM for the Suns vs. Pelicans game!

That some day is Friday. Our goal is 1,000 by Friday!

One more HUGE promotion!

Throughout this ticket drive, we’ve offered lots of incentives to get you to donate...

  • Everyone who donates 1-9 tickets at any point during this ticket drive are entered into two different drawings for free tickets to a Suns game of their choosing this year (one more drawing this week!)
  • Everyone who donates 10+ tickets gets a pair their OWN primo lower-bowl tickets; (still available!)
  • 25 people who donated 10+ tickets get a pre-game meet-and-greet with GM Ryan McDonough (sold out)
  • 25 people who donated 10+ tickets get access to the floor level VIP area to high-five the Suns players at halftime (sold out)
  • From 11/9 - 11/12, those who donated 5+ tickets got free lower-bowl tickets to the Suns-Nets game (completed)
  • From 11/14 - 11/21, Suns forward Jared Dudley matched every donation (125 tickets). We called it the Dudley Double! (completed)
  • Everyone who donated anything on Black Friday were entered into a drawing for free tickets to a Suns game of their choosing this year (completed)

And now...

Drum roll please...

This is on top of the Suns already giving away lower-bowl tickets to everyone who donates 10+ tickets, plus the custom T-shirts, plus the giveaways to the kids themselves.

The Suns are so excited about this ticket drive they can’t help adding to it.

Every ticket you donate this week turns becomes TWO smiling faces at the game on Sunday!


What is Bright Side Night?

We, the contributors and readers of Bright Side, are giving back to our community by donating Suns game tickets to underprivileged kids to go with their friends and chaperones, have a great time, get memorabilia to keep forever, and a wonderful memory that many of US have of our first pro game.

Last year: 825 kids got to see their first game

This year: We are thisclose to sending over 1,000 kids! Only about 100 tickets away from 1,000 as of Monday morning.

We get to fill up a whole corner of the arena with kids that WE sent to the game on our own dime!

We have also gotten a nice boost from Lon Babby, Earl Watson, Jared Dudley and ESPN Insider Amin Elhassan in sharing our ticket drive with their followers or donating to the night itself or both.


What: Phoenix Suns vs. New Orleans Pelicans

When: December 11, 2016, 6:30 PM
