A Playmaker pledges $100,000 over a maximum of four years to Phoenix Suns Charities. For their generous support they receive a table and recognition at each Gala event during their pledge period and an option on many other VIP-style amenities. The Playmakers who have already committed are helping to guarantee the long-term future of Phoenix Suns Charities and the continuance of its good work throughout Arizona. Through a generous gift from the entire Phoenix Suns Ownership, all 17 of the partners are Playmakers.
