The Phoenix Suns and Southwest Airlines announce Scott Libby Elementary, Riverbend Prep Academy, Desert Valley Elementary and Norterra Canyon School as the “We LUV It Here!” program grant recipients.

Each of the four winning schools will be presented with a grant worth up to $5,000 during a ceremony in the Coors Light Cold Zone prior to the Suns home matchup with the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday, April 7. The presentation will take place at 5:30 p.m., with tip-off scheduled for 6 p.m.

In various forms, the question has been raised around this Phoenix Suns team numerous times: What is it playing for?
