Saturday night just before tip-off of the Phoenix Suns-Utah Jazz game, Fulton Homes Vice President Dennis Webb presented a $74,400 check to local Phoenix charities for the season-long “Proud to Own the 3-Point Zone” program.
Throughout the season the Tempe-based homebuilder donated $100 each time a Suns player drained a three-point shot. During this NBA season the Suns were 8th in the league in three-pointers, hitting 744 from the arc. Monies collected will go to support the U.S. Navy League, an organization that serves and supports all sea services of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines, the Joe Foss Institute and the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association (CAMRA).
For 12 years Fulton Homes has partnered with the Suns to give back to a wide variety of charitable organizations. Last year through the 3-Point Zone program Fulton Homes donated $76,500.
“Fulton Homes is happy that the great success the Suns had this season from the three-point line, and how it will benefit the U.S. Navy League, the Joe Foss Institute and CAMRA,” said Fulton Homes CEO Doug Fulton. “Fulton Homes is dedicated to giving back to a community that has given so much to our family throughout the years.”
