Phoenix Suns players, coaches and alumni mingled with VIP guests at the Phoenix Suns Charities’ annual gala, The Jump Ball, at Talking Stick Resort. All the funds raised that night—$1 million in total net proceeds—will directly fund the annual grants and scholarships given to the 100-plus local nonprofits and students of the Phoenix Suns Charities.
Guests likely suffered from stiff necks the next day, as everyone enjoyed chatting with our tall and talented Suns players such as Channing Frye, Goran Dragic, Leandro Barbosa, Dionte Christmas, Ish Smith and others.
Celebrating the theme Ignite the Future for Arizona Kids, gala-goers did their best to shine the spotlight on our state’s youth via contributions to the live and silent auction. After dinner, the live entertainment from the Legends in Concert Michael Jackson tribute band featuring Damian Brantley, and music from DJ Roonie G certainly had guests jumping for joy by the end of the night. –Photos by Haute Photography
