The Philippine Basketball Association added a significant meaning to Father’s Day celebration by holding its blood donation drive today at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
No less than league commissioner Willie Marcial will spearhead the project, now on its fourth year, in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross and Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The blood donation is in line with the league’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project through the Alagang PBA program.
It starts at 12 noon at the Big Dome green gate.
“What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than to donate blood for a cause. Kaya sana sa lahat ng mga kapwa nating tatay and sa mga PBA fans, sana suportahan ninyo po yung blood donation project ng liga,” said Marcial.
Marcial also said that Gillette, the official razor of the PBA, will put up an ‘Ahit Pogi’ station at the green gate of the SAC and provide free shaving.
Assorted freebies will also be given to 200 fathers who will watch the day’s double-header with their family or kids.
Raffle prizes also await the audience inside the venue during the celebration supported by Blackwater.
The other supporters of the event are Jimms Coffee, Locally, Maxsell Power Tools and Bench FIX Salon.
