Suns Charities 88 Announces Members, 'Corporate Champion' Opportunity

PHOENIX – Suns Charities 88 announces its 2014-2015 member class, comprised of business professionals and community leaders devoted to raising much needed funds for Arizona children.

Suns Charities 88, presented by Wells Fargo, was created in 2012 to offer a platform for energized business professionals across the Phoenix Metroplex to network amongst their peers. This powerful group, comprised of 88 professionals, works collectively to give back to the community through the philanthropic power of Phoenix Suns Charities. The combined efforts of Suns Charities 88 members create a forum for networking, collaboration and fundraising opportunities, resulting in a community minded, connected workforce across the Valley.

In the platform’s second year, Suns Charities 88 raised $215,000 for Phoenix Suns Charities. Funds were raised through memberships, sponsorships and the program’s signature event, Slam Dunk, in October.

In addition, Suns Charities 88 is introducing “Corporate Champion,” a new opportunity for business professionals interested in getting involved with the networking platform. A “Corporate Champion” is a professional that advocates inside their organization, resulting in the sponsorship of a Suns Charities 88 event or program.

Phoenix Suns Charities, founded in 1988, is the non-profit organization and philanthropic cornerstone of the Phoenix Suns.  It was formed with the mission to enhance the lives of Arizona’s children and their families by actively creating and supporting programs in the areas of education, health, human services, the arts, rehabilitation and sports and recreation. Throughout the past 26 years, more than $15 million has been contributed to more than 200 charitable organizations in Arizona.
