Suns Donate $1.2M To Charities

Phoenix made a few roster signings over the last month to make millionaires — millionaires and that’s all well and good because it keeps the game we all love watching interesting especially if you dig the Suns.

Even cooler than those signings the Suns made to keep pace in the west, was the $1.2 million in donations Phoenix Suns Charities made to 157 deserving grant recipients.

“We are so proud of what you do for our community,” Phoenix Suns Charities Executive Director Kathryn Pidgeon told the attendees. “Who says we have bad news in this community? You are the good news.”

One of the single biggest contributions Phoenix Suns Charities made was of $100,000 to the Halle Heart Children’s Museum to help construction a new spotlight exhibit, “The Beat Goes On,” aimed at educating children about developing healthy ways to lower their risk of heart disease, obesity and high blood pressure.

The $1.2 million in grants, program support and scholarships puts the Phoenix Suns Charities organization at more than $10 million in donations since its 1988 inception.
