QUEZON CITY, Philippines – The much-awaited comeback of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) legends through UNTV Cup’s charity game, dubbed as the Skywalker Exhibition Game, is set on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
The charity exhibition game is a project organized by BMPI-UNTV CEO Daniel Razon and the PBA legends. It aims to raise funds to support the recovery expenses of PBA legend Samboy ‘Skywalker’ Lim. He is now recuperating after being confined in the ICU following a collapse from an exhibition game last year.
Naturally, Skywalker All Stars are composed of the PBA legends. They are set to play against the UNTV All Stars.
Among the PBA legends who will participate are Alvin Patrimonio, Jojo Lastimosa, Allan Caidic, Pido Jarencio, Franz Pumaren, Hector Calma, Bong Ravena, Ato Agustin, Olsen Racela, Art dela Cruz, Alvin Teng, Freddie Abuda, Ronnie Magsanoc and Tonichi Yturri, together with the UNTV Cup Commissioners, Atoy Co and Ed Cordero.
The charity game is the opening salvo of Game 2 of the UNTV Cup Season 3 Finals between the Judiciary Magis and Malacañang Patriots.
Undoubtedly, UNTV Cup is the only basketball league that showcases the various departments of the Philippine government like the Department of Justice (DOJ), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Philippine National Police (PNP), Congress and Local Government Units, Judiciary, Philhealth, Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) , and the National Housing Authority (NHA).
