The Phoenix Suns were honored last night at the Phoenix Business Journal’s “Heart of Business Awards” for the recent launch of “SunsCentral,” a unique education-based partnership between the Suns and Central High School (CHS).
The “SunsCentral” partnership is the result of a $500,000 grant, over two years, that Phoenix Suns Charities is donating to Central High School. The initiative aims to provide support services to struggling CHS students to help keep them in school.
