“Nakakaawa ang mga kababayan natin sa Batangas, so dapat lang damayan natin,” added Caidic.

Joining Caidic and Abarrientos are Chris Calaguio, and former PBA MVP winners Jayjay Helterbrand and Willie Miller.

Other members of their team are Rod Vasallo of PITC, Anton Tolentino of PNP, Julius Casaysayan of Agriculture and GSIS’ Carlo Gonzalez and Macky Escalona.

Comprising the celebrity squad are Mark Herras, Ejay Falcon, JayR, Young JV, Jordan Herrera, Adrian Alandy, James Blanco, Albie Casino, Gerhard Acao, Axel Torres, and Rayver Cruz.

The event will have Crispa great Atoy Co as match director, with Ed Cordero calling the shots for Legends-UNTV team. Meanwhile, Emman Monfort coaches the celebrities.

There will also a volleyball exhibition between the celebrities and current players from various leagues.

Former Ateneo star and ABS-CBN host Gretchen Ho has also agreed to take part along with Claudia Barreto, Aya Fernandez, and Gwen Zamora.
