Bright Side Night 2022 Update: Sales, dates and 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!

Now that the holidays are over, we are free once again to think outside our houses, our families and all that gift-buying for ourselves and others. All that’s left is those dratted thank you cards still sitting on the counter.

It’s time to decompress and get back to real life. The pandemic is still surging, and we are once again putting first responders and health care heroes at increased risk.

We — YOU and ME — are giving back to thank them for their service with tickets to a Phoenix Suns game at the Footprint Center!

This is what we call BRIGHT SIDE NIGHT.

In the first five years of this event, we have sent more than 10,000 underprivileged kids and chaperones to Suns games to give them a memory of a lifetime.

This year, it’s first responders and healthcare heroes! So far, we have collected 1,000 tickets worth of donations, and the game is only only 6 weeks away.

Take a minute right now, and help us run those numbers up.


Donate THIS WEEK, by January 9, to be entered into a special raffle. One lucky winner will get a $100 gift card to Phoenix Suns merchandise at from me, plus any other perks listed below.

If you don’t love merch, that’s okay. How about tickets to an upcoming game instead?

Donate now:

*More perks listed below too!

What: Just $11 of your money sends a first responder or healthcare hero to a Suns game!

When: Rockets at Suns, February 16, 2022 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 takes less time than ordering something you absolutely need dumb on Amazon.
