Phoenix Suns Charities announced Valley Christian as the winner of the 2018 Phoenix Suns Charities’ “Charity Challenge” during an on-court recognition during halftime of the Suns-New York Knicks game. As the winner, our school receives a $25,000 grant from Phoenix Suns Charities.
“Being selected as the winner of the 2018 Charity Challenge means everything to us,” said Lynn Spina, Development Project Coordinator at Valley Christian High School. “We are excited to use this money to continue growing the school and improving the spiritual lives of our students. The Phoenix Suns organization has been great throughout this process, and it just means so much that we get to be a part of this.”
Valley Christian High School aims to prepare students academically, physically, socially and spiritually, so they are enabled to make a difference in the world. In addition to challenging academics, students have the opportunity to partake in a wide array of extra-curricular opportunities, including spiritual and campus leadership, championship sports teams, award winning performance groups and more.
During the first half of the season, local non-profit organizations were encouraged to participate in the “Charity Challenge” program in which the Suns donated thousands of complimentary tickets to charitable organizations that serve children and families in Arizona. More than 100 non-profits were eligible to receive the $25,000 grant and the winner was selected after fans voted online for the non-profit they believed was most deserving of the grant, based on each organization’s mission statement.
Thank you to our entire community – especially our alumni – for attending games this season and for voting for our mission and enabling us to win this grant!
