Happy Thanksgiving! Now put your family to work

New, comments

Gobble, gobble Suns fans! Make today a day to be proud of yourself

Someone said the day before Thanksgiving is the biggest alcohol selling day of the year. Which just tells me that most of us need a lot of liquid inspiration to be our most thankful selves.

I hope you are spending today with your best besties, related or otherwise, making it a great day of food, sports and spirits.

But even if you’re not, you should know that we, the Bright Side community, are here for you.

You are an extension of my family, and I hope I’m an extension of yours. Let’s do something important together. Not everyone has a reason to smile today. Maybe you do, maybe you don’t.

But isn’t it worse when it’s a kid who’s got no reason to smile?

This is where you come in.

Make everyone in your family donate today!

You’re stuck with them. All day. So put them to work! Carry your tablet or phone or laptop around the house and make all those miserable wonderful people give a few bucks to YOUR annual cause.

And, share this link with your family around the world.

Tell them it doesn’t matter that the Suns are shitty. All that matters is that we gave underprivileged kids a positive memory that will stick with them forever. We’ve sent 4,000 kids to games the last three years. This year, it’s only 500 so far.

Your donors don’t need to live in Phoenix. If you get Uncle Bob from Philly to donate 10+ tickets, he can give even those extra tickets to kids too! That’s 12 tickets for $90!

The tickets are donated to local non-profits and Title 1 schools where children need a little extra holiday cheer.

Donate today so the kids can have their ticket before holiday break next month.


  • Click this link to donate: Suns.com/Brightside
  • It’s $9 per ticket. All of it goes to tickets for the kids. No extra fees or charges.
  • Fill out the one-page form to select the number of tickets you want to donate, and how you’re going to pay
  • You will get a confirmation email directly from the Suns about the ticket donation

That’s it!


Oh and there IS always something in it for YOU

(for out-of-towners, of course you can re-donate your own winnings to send even MORE kids to the game and/or give them the VIP experience)

  • Every TWO tickets you donate enters your name into a raffle for a VIP experience (two PREMIUM tickets to a game, pregame courtside access for warmups and a signed ball)
  • $90 = 10 kids go, PLUS you get a pair of upper-level tickets for yourself
  • $225 = 25 kids go, PLUS you get a pair of lower-level tickets for yourself
  • The first 25 to donate $90+ at once (10 tickets) get an exclusive invitation for a private Bright Side interview session with James Jones, Suns VP and acting General Manager
  • If you’re among the first 50 to donate $90+ at once (10 tickets), you also get to shoot around after the game on the Suns court.
