Third Light Supports Phoenix Mercury’s Annual Fundraiser to Help Phoenix Children Attend Home Games

Phoenix Mercury is a professional basketball team based in Phoenix, Arizona, who play in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA). Every year they organize an annual fundraising campaign, Mercury Madness Week. The campaign’s aim is to send underprivileged youth in the Phoenix area to Mercury home games in August and September.

To help create lasting memories for these children, Mercury Madness Week offers individuals or companies the opportunity to donate money to purchase Phoenix Mercury tickets. For every $10 donated, one ticket can be purchased. In previous years the campaign has raised $210,000 and this year’s goal is $225,000. With these tickets, children will have the chance to attend their first Mercury game at Talking Stick Resort Arena, and most likely their first ever professional basketball game.

Michael Wells, Managing Director of Third Light, comments:

“Third Light is delighted to continue supporting this fantastic fundraising campaign and give these children a once in a lifetime opportunity. We are always keen to support these initiatives, helping young people experience the excitement of live sport. I would encourage more companies to contribute to this worthy cause.”

As well as supporting this fundraising campaign in the USA, Third Light is the proud sponsor of their local Waterbeach Colts U13 football team, in Cambridge, England.
