“This year, we will be helping families who were affected by the huge fire in Davao and at the same time, people from the city of Samal who live in a very dangerous area near the shoreline to help relocate them to a proper shelter,” said Dabon.

In addition, Dabon furthers that the San Roque Elementary School will also benefit with the restoration of their classrooms provided by a fresh repaint as he has partnered with Boysen Philippines.

“This is not your kind of normal league. We are here to compete. We are here to be champions. But it is more fulfilling to champion the hearts of those who are underprivileged and those who are marginalized. We want to have a league that’s grand, memorable and charitable,” said Dabon.
