PHOENIX – July 28, 2010 For the second year, Qwest Communications (NYSE: Q) has partnered with Fox Sports Network Arizona as part of its “Share the Win” Program to provide support to the Friendly House, a long-standing community based organization serving the needs of Arizona families.


  • For every Arizona Diamondbacks’ win throughout the 2010 season, Qwest will donate a $100, up to $10,000, to the Friendly House organization to help support adult and youth educational programs. *In the event the Diamondbacks do not reach 100 wins, Qwest will continue contributing to the positive impact the Friendly House has had in our community.
  • For over 10 years, Qwest has supported the Friendly House organization through various Qwest Foundation Grants by providing access to school supplies, reading materials and nutritional food items for family participants. In April, the Qwest Foundation provided 300 backpacks filled with educational materials to students at the Friendly Houses’ Academia del Pueblo Charter School.
  • The “Share the Win” Program will conclude at the end of the regular season in October with an in-game check presentation by Qwest Arizona leadership to the Friendly House.
  • The program began with the first Arizona Diamondbacks win on April 5 against the San Diego Padres.


Jim Campbell, Qwest president-Arizona

“The combination of the Diamondbacks’ commitment to Arizona and Friendly House’s long track record of providing vital services to Arizonans makes our continued participation in the share the win program an easy choice. Qwest is proud to continue our long history of contributing to communities and organizations throughout Arizona in order to produce a positive impact.”


Luis Ibarra, President & CEO Friendly House

"Friendly House is proud of the partnership we have with Qwest Share the Win program because it provides the organization with significant resources to serve our community. It also makes it possible for Friendly House to reinforce its mission and promote its services. Collectively, Friendly House and Qwest have been serving our communities for over 90 years and many have benefited from the generous support of Qwest. Friendly House addresses some of the most critical needs of the Latino Community which would be difficult to do without the help of Qwest."
