US Airways Center was transformed into the “O Lounge” on April 20, 2012. Every year Phoenix Suns Charities hosts a large benefit to raise money for Arizona nonprofit organizations that serve children and youth in the areas of education, health and human services, the arts, sports and recreation, and rehabilitation. This year’s event, the “O Lounge,” was held on the Suns main court and marked Phoenix Suns Charities’ first-ever orange and white party. Phoenix Suns Charities Playmakers, charitable marketing partners, Valley residents and friends of the Suns enjoyed gourmet cuisine and live entertainment, all in recognition and support of Phoenix Suns Charities.
Performances by “Phat Strad,” an all-girl string quartet with a rock ’n’ roll twist, and “Super Diamond,” a high-octane Neil Diamond tribute band from San Francisco, entertained the crowds as they enjoyed a fabulous array of food by Chefs Beau MacMillan and Eddie Matney and their local celebrity chef friends. The evening also included a live auction and dancing.
