Fulton Homes, Suns Reunite For Three-Point Zone
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.
