Phoenix Suns and CenturyLink Partner For Community Initiative

November 10, 2014

National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise the Phoenix Suns and CenturyLink, Inc. have partnered to launch “Project Assist,” a community outreach initiative designed to provide one local non-profit organization each month with a $2,000 donation to positively impact the community.

The program will run from November 2014 – March 2015.

Suns fans are encouraged to log on to the team’s website to nominate a local non-profit by illustrating how the organization will make a positive impact with the donation. Entries will be accepted through March 2, 2015.

Based on the entries, representatives from CenturyLink and the Suns will select one non-profit per month as the recipient of a $2,000 donation, courtesy of CenturyLink.

The five winning non-profit organizations will be invited to a Suns home game and be recognized during an on-court presentation at halftime of their respective game.

“CenturyLink is dedicated to enhancing the communities we serve,” said Ken McMahon, vice president and general manager for CenturyLink in Phoenix.

“CenturyLink’s Project Assist encourages fans to nominate their favourite non-profit by sharing how it positively impacts Arizona.”
