Bright Side Night: FINAL DAYS! Stop procrastinating and donate NOW

New, comments

Ticket sales stop at the end of December

Bright Side readers and Suns fans have donated more than $18,000 so far to send underprivileged kids to the Suns home game vs. the Sacramento Kings on January 7!

THANK YOU!

And that’s all in $9 increments, folks. Every $9 sends TWO more underprivileged kids to the game.

What are you waiting for? Donate now! Or if you’ve donated already and still have some money in your bank account, donate again!

Donate now: suns.com/brightside

We haven’t quite reached last season’s donations yet and there’s only two days left to donate!

So far, readers and fans have donated almost 2,000 tickets to underprivileged kids. Last year we donated 2,300 tickets together. So we’re still short on donations. The Suns are matching every ticket you donate.

PLEASE DONATE today.

Tickets go to schools and programs that support children in need throughout the Phoenix community. These kids don’t have a lot to smile about. Why not give them the memory of a lifetime?

Every $9 adds two more kids.

What’s $9 to you? A couple of coffees from Starbucks? A chicken sandwich and fries from Popeye’s?

To these kids, it means a lifelong memory of being in an NBA arena for the first time in their lives, to hear the squeak of sneakers on the hardwood, to watch the gorilla perform his halftime antics, to get a free T-shirt to remember the night by. To hear all the sights and sounds of a professional basketball game.

It’s only $9. Come on, now.

I don’t ask you for much. There’s no subscription fee for this website. No incessant pop-up ads. No click-baiting. No slide-show articles that force you to click over and over to get to the end.

You don’t pay a dime for exclusive Suns coverage all day, all night, 365 days a year. We publish unique REAL analysis more than 1,000 times a year. Plus free podcasts, for those who like that kind of thing.

All I want from you is to donate once or twice a year to Bright Side Night.
