Chooks gives back ahead of FIBA 3×3 WT Manila Masters

In the bustling city of Makati, anticipation fills the air as the Manila Chooks! squad prepares to represent the Philippines in the highly anticipated FIBA 3×3 World Tour Manila Masters at the Glorietta Activity Center. But before the team hits the court, they embarked on a remarkable mission that showcased the heart and soul behind Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3.

Deep in the heart of Silang, Cavite, the Chooks-to-Go President, Ronald Mascariñas, known as the amiable godfather of Philippine 3×3, led a transformative initiative at the Sisters of Mary Boystown and Girlstown. Demonstrating his unwavering commitment to the community, Mascariñas pledged an annual financial support of P2.8 million to ensure that these deserving students receive the education and opportunities they deserve.

However, his efforts did not stop there.

Recognizing the power of shared experiences and the importance of nurturing dreams, Mascariñas orchestrated a monthly Chooks-to-Go oven-roasted feast, tantalizing their taste buds and filling their hearts with joy. Additionally, he provided 50 basketballs, igniting their passion for sports and inspiring them to reach for the stars.2023-Chooks-Manila-Masters-Paul-Desiderio-x-Dennis-Santos-1 Chooks gives back ahead of FIBA 3x3 WT Manila Masters 3x3 Basketball Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 News  - philippine sports news

Mascariñas, driven by a profound purpose, spoke passionately about the role Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 plays in bridging societal gaps.

“Our commitment extends beyond mere assistance and entertainment,” he stated.

“We believe that our collective actions have the power to shape a brighter future for our fellow Filipinos. We strive to ignite hope and inspire our kababayans to realize their potential as agents of positive change.”

The event at Sisters of Mary Boystown and Girlstown was graced not only by Mascariñas but also by the Manila Chooks! cagers themselves. Mac Tallo, Paul Desiderio, Brandon Ramirez, Dennis Santos, Cj Payawal, and head trainer Chico Lanete brought their infectious energy, adding to the atmosphere of excitement and unity.
