Members of the Phoenix Suns team will generously provide more than 15,000 Arizona children with the opportunity to attend a Suns home game this season, as part of the newly announced Suns Player Community Ticket Program.

One Suns’ player will host a designated “Player Section” at most of the team’s remaining home games, personally sponsoring tickets for local children and their families, among others, who otherwise would not have been able to attend a game. Several Suns’ players have agreed to sponsor multiple nights, with tickets being distributed to existing community partners.

In addition, the Phoenix Suns organization has graciously matched all player donations to ensure that additional children will benefit from the program. To further enhance and personalize the experience for the young Suns’ fans and their families, each player has named his section. Names of the player sections are below.

Michael Beasley: Easy Street
Shannon Brown: SB’s Crew
Goran Dragic: The Dragon’s Lair
Jared Dudley: Dudley’s Do-Rights
Marcin Gortat: Polish Grom
Wesley Johnson: Wes Coast
Markieff Morris: #TeamFOE
Luis Scola: Scola’s Squad
P.J Tucker: Tucker’s Hustlers

Suns rookies’ Diante Garrett, Kendall Marshall and Tyler Zeller also generously contributed to the cause.
