That swish from the arc is beginning to add up. Through the first month of the season, the Phoenix Suns have hit 105 three-pointers, banking a cool $10,500 for the Youth Assistance Foundation. With five months of the season remaining, they are on course to raise more than $60,000 for the non-profit.
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, the Youth Assistance Foundation receives $100.
“Fulton Homes is dedicated to local charities like the Youth Assistance Foundation and recognizes the good work they do to prevent youth violence, promote good role models and positive interactions with law enforcement,” Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes, said.
Fulton Homes reunited this fall 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 includes all 80 home and away regular season games broadcast on Fox Sports Net.
Twenty-three feet, nine inches is the distance that makes Fulton Homes, the Phoenix Suns and local charities a winner this season.
Tempe-based Fulton Homes is reuniting with the Phoenix Suns to revive the Fulton Homes “Proud to own the Three-Point Zone” program, which in years past has provided tens of thousands of dollars to Phoenix Suns Charities. When a Phoenix Suns player drains a three-pointer this season, Fulton Homes will write a $100 check to Phoenix Suns Charities. This year’s sponsorship includes both home and away games broadcast on Fox Sports Net. With 80 televised games on the schedule, and a Suns average of 6.7 three-point shots per game last season, Phoenix Suns Charities could slam dunk some serious donations.
“Fulton Homes is really excited to partner again with the Phoenix Suns to benefit Phoenix Suns Charities,” Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes, said. “If the Suns keep their three-point game up, we could be giving quite a bit to worthy causes.”
Phoenix Suns Charities is the cornerstone of the team’s charitable giving. The organization offers grants to non-profits that serve children and youth in the areas of education, health and human services, the arts, sports, and recreation and rehabilitation.
