Pro league embarks on charity work


    THE PBA will do some charity work to cap off its final conference this season.

    The league will match every point scored by both teams in the last two minutes of each Governors Cup game with a P100 donation to World Vision.

    The project takes effect during the eliminations the season-ending meet that kicks off on Sept. 20 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Proceeds of the campaign will benefit specific projects and programs of World Vision to their assisted communities.

    World Vision is a global humanitarian organization devoted to improving the lives of families and communities to overcome poverty. As the largest non-profit organization in the country, it helps over 1.5 million children every year with the support of thousands of Filipinos sponsors and donors.

    “In our own little way, the PBA wants to help change a child’s life lalo na at ang ating liga ay isa sa mga nagsisilbing inspirasyon sa ating kabataan na mahilig sa basketball at palakasan,” said Commissioner Willie Marcial.

    World Vision is a partner of the league in its Alagang PBA project.

    The annual blood donation drive and the corresponding wheelchair donated by promoter Double V Productions to charity for every dunk and three-point shot made during this year’s All-Star game in Calasiao, Pangasinan were some of the ventures done so far through the Alagang PBA project this season.
