Announcing: Bright Side Night 2020! No time to waste!!

You and your friendly neighborhood blog get to send thousands more kids to a Suns game!

Drum roll please...

We’re back, baby!!!

Took a while longer than I wanted, but we’re back and ready to send MORE kids to a Suns game!

Due to a tech snafu, we haven’t been able to release the site that collects donations until now... so our current donation total is 0 dollars. And there’s only 4 weeks till game time.

But hey, better late than never, I always say....

We are proud to announce the FIFTH annual BRIGHT SIDE NIGHT, where our community sent 3,000+ deserving and underprivileged children from the Valley to a Phoenix Suns game last year!

What: Just $9 of your money sends an underprivileged kid to a Suns game!

When: Kings at Suns, January 7, 2020 at 7:00 PM

This is OUR thing. You, we, us. Bright Side readers, writers and lurkers. WE are the ones who do this every year.

It’s only $9 of your hard earned money for each ticket you donate.

And right now, the Suns are matching every donation 1-for-1! So every $9 counts double!

Last year, we sent a record 3,300 kids to a game. Over four years, we’ve sent more 7,400! All from you guys. From us.

This time it’s our January 7 home game against Bogdan Bogdanovic, De’Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings. The kids get to see Ricky Rubio, Devin Booker and the crew raining threes supplemented by the return of Deandre Ayton!

This is it.

Only $9 per happy kid!


It’s takes less time than ordering something you absolutely need dumb on Amazon.

  • Click this link to donate:
  • It’s $9 per ticket. No extra fees or charges. THE SUNS ARE MATCHING EVERY DONATION RIGHT NOW! So right now, $9 sends TWO kids! $18 sends four! Etc. Etc. Etc.

That’s it!

Oh and there IS always something in it for YOU

  • Every TWO tickets you buy ($18) 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 of you to donate $90+ at once (10 tickets) get an exclusive invitation for a private Bright Side interview session with one of the Suns front office folks
  • If you’re among the first 25 to donate $225+ at once (25 tickets) and you can make it to the game itself, we will honor you pregame right there on the SUNS COURT! You get to walk out on the court yourself and get cheered by the crowd!

*In prior years, GM Ryan McDonough or James Jones gave us 30+ minutes of their own time right before tip-off of the game. Still awaiting confirmation of Jones’ availability for this year.

In 2015 it was 825 kids.

In 2016 it was almost 1,200 kids.

The third year it was 2,100 kids.

Last year it was 3,300 kids!

Let’s do even better this year!
