The Phoenix Suns’ 3-point shooting are benefiting the U.S. Navy League as Fulton Homes and CEO Doug Fulton have chosen them as the charity of choice for their “Proud to Own the 3-Point Zone” sponsorship and promotion.

Each time a Suns player makes a 3-point basket, Fulton Homes donates $100 to the Navy League, according to a press release.

Just past the half way mark of the season, the Suns have made a total of 481 3-pointers as of their Jan. 24 game against the Portland Trail Blazers. This puts them ahead of where they were at this time last season with 417 3-pointers.

The team is successfully converting an average of 9.9 3-point shot attempts per game, which is 0.6 higher than last season and the highest level since the 2006-07 season.

Fulton Homes has been “Proud to Own the Three-Point Zone” for eight of the last 10 Phoenix Suns’ seasons. Fulton has chosen to boost the U.S. Navy League, which serves and supports all sea services of the U.S. Military including the U.S. Navy, Marine Corp., Coast Guard and Merchant Marines, a release states.

“Fulton Homes is again proud to partner again with the Phoenix Suns for another season,” Mr. Fulton said in a prepared statement.

“As the Suns keep improving their three-point game, Fulton Homes will continue supporting the U.S. Navy League for the inspiring work they do each day. It’s a great fit for Fulton Homes and the fans.”

During the games on the television broadcast, Suns fans hear “Fulton Homes is Proud to Own the 3 Point Zone” after every made basket or at the next break in action.
