NOW ACCEPTING NOMINATIONS

Phoenix Suns Charities is now accepting nominations for the “Spirit of Cotton Award,” which honors legendary former Suns head coach Cotton Fitzsimmons by annually recognizing an outstanding Arizona high school coach for their leadership, dedication and service to the community in helping guide and mentor student-athletes.

The winner will receive a $10,000 grant for use in the school’s athletic program.

Nominations are due by March 16, 2018 and the winner will be recognized during a special on-court presentation alongside JoAnn Fitzsimmons, wife of Cotton Fitzsimmons, when the Suns host the Golden State Warriors on April 8.
