Bright Side Night 2022: a Special Offer for you

You and your friendly neighborhood blog get to send thousands of pandemic first responders and heath care heroes to a Suns game!

Time is running down, leading up to our SIXTH ANNUAL Bright Side Night. We — you and me — are sending First Responders and Health Care Heroes to the Phoenix Suns vs. Houston Rockets game on February 16th.

I don’t need to tell you what a great cause this is. You know it’s a great cause. If you haven’t donated yet, you’ve already told yourself ‘why do today what I can do tomorrow?’ amiright.

Stop procrastinating.

Details - how to donate

Donate here:

Cost: $11 for per donated ticket

Bonus: Suns MATCH every single donation, no matter how big or small

Perks: Read the link for perks at every + level (2+, 10+, 25+, 50+) — the more you donate, the more people you help and the more you get for yourself!

Donations Update

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far! Unfortunately, that hasn’t been enough of you yet.

We are only at just over 700 tickets donated so far, less than one-third of the tickets donated just two years ago to the last (pre-pandemic) Bright Side Night.

You’re all procrastinating. Let’s go!


Donate THIS WEEKEND — meaning Friday, Saturday or Sunday — and you’ll be entered into a RAFFLE for a pair of awesome seats at Suns-Rockets on top of whatever other perks you get for the donation (see link for details on that).

Seats donated for THIS raffle by BrightSide fans:

  • 6th row, mid-court
  • 11th row, behind the Suns bench

One raffle, two winners. All you need to do is donate. Today, tomorrow or Sunday. Everyone who donates can win.

Donate here:

Full disclosure: You can’t win if you don’t play! The last raffle winner had a 1 in 7 chance of winning that $100 gift card.
