While Monday night was fan appreciation night for the Phoenix Suns, thanks to Fulton Homes the Youth Assistance Foundation and the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association (CAMRA) will now divide up $46,000.
It’s all part of the Fulton Homes “Proud to Own the Three-Point Zone” program, a partnership between the Tempe-based homebuilder and the Phoenix Suns. With each three-point basket made during the season, the Youth Assistance Foundation and CAMRA shared in the $100. The program began in late October with the opening game tip-off and concluded with a victory Monday night at home against Houston. Fulton Homes Vice President Dennis Webb presented the check to Phoenix Suns officials during the game.
The Youth Assistance Foundation helps to prevent youth violence and promotes positive interactions with law enforcement. CAMRA, along with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Mountain Rescue (MCSO-MR) team, is an all-volunteer and expertly trained technical rescue team dedicated to saving lives through search and rescue operations, wilderness emergency medical services and outdoor safety programs.
“Partnering up with the Phoenix Suns for this program will aid both of the organizations,” Doug Fulton, Fulton Homes CEO, said. “The Youth Assistance Foundation promotes youth health and wellness programs, while CAMRA aids those who find themselves in life and death situations. Fulton Homes is proud to give back to a community where we live and work.”
Fulton Homes reunited this season with the Phoenix Suns to revive the Fulton Homes “Proud to Own the Three-Point Zone” program. In previous seasons, Fulton Homes has donated more than $206,000 over five years to local charities through Phoenix Suns Charities. This year’s partnership included all 80 home and away regular season games broadcast on Fox Sports Net.
Diamondback fans are lining up with Opening Day around the corner and Valley homebuilder Fulton Homes is ready to take the baseball league by storm with the Fulton Homes Home Run Program in partnership with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Every time a Diamondbacks player hits a home run at Chase Field during the 2012 season, the Fulton Homes will donate $150 to the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association (CAMRA) or the Youth Assistance Foundation.
Last baseball season, the Fulton Homes Home Run Program scored more than $25,000 in donations. This year Fulton Homes will donate $150 per Chase Field home run to the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association or to the Youth Assistance Foundation. Last season the D-Backs were sixth in the league with a total of 172 home runs, 93 of them at Chase Field. D-Back fans hope the home run sweep continues this year with the teams’ strong key hitters.
CAMRA has been saving lives and educating about safety since its establishment in 1969. The team is trained technically to perform search and rescue missions in the backcountry of Arizona. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to saving lives through search and rescue operations and through wilderness emergency medical services.
The Youth Assistance Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports programs focused on preventing youth violence and encouraging social development while promoting a positive interaction with law enforcement.
“We are proud of our home team to not only be hitting talent and treasure out of the park, but also spreading it around the Valley,” said Fulton Homes CEO Douglas Fulton. “The relationship Fulton Homes has built with the Diamondbacks through this home run program is giving back to the community who builds us.”
Tempe-based Fulton Homes has built a legacy of community involvement, contributing more than $300 million to Arizona communities, schools and children in its 35 years of serving Arizona families.
