As a thanksgiving gift to the Sisters of Mary School Boystown, Chooks-to-Go gave the institution a check worth PHP 100,000. But it ended up being more than that.
Prior to the Manok ng Bayan-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas 3×3 tourney, Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. President Ronald Mascariñas had already planned to donate the given amount. Little did everyone know that the amiable executive had a surprise in store.
“When I walked in here, ang daming nagpapasalamat sa amin. Pero kami talaga ang nagpapasalamat sa inyo,” Mascariñas shared during the opening remarks of the two-day tournament in Cebu. He was also with ambassadors Kobe Paras and Thirdy Ravena.
“With such a young age, you are already giving back to the country, as the points we will accumulate here will help in our journey to the 2020 Olympics,” he added.
“That is why on top of the 100,000, we are going to give 100,000 every month to help continue the cycle of goodness by the sisters here.”
Upon hearing this, the SBP commended Chooks-to-Go as it continues to spread their mission of helping in nation-building through basketball.
“On-the-spot yun eh. Napag-usapan lang namin is magbibigay sila ng 100,000. Yung magbibigay siya ng monthly, on-the-spot yun, doon lang sa stage. At siya lang nagsabi dahil natuwa siya sa nakita niyang reception at involvement ng mga bata at mga madre,” admitted SBP Executive Director Sonny Barrios.
For Boystown, they plan to use the funds they will receive to continue the development of their sports program and to build more rooms inside the school.
“Sa totoo lang yung heart ko, umiyak ako,” said Sister of Mary School Boystown athletic director Van Parmis. “I’m happy and blessed sa Boystown and Girlstown kasi yung Chooks-to-Go magbibigay ng 100,000 per month, malaking bagay sa mga opportunities ng bata. Yung wish namin po, tupad na po eh. Natupad yung wish namin dahil sa Chooks-to-Go. Dahil din sa SBP, na-recognize yung Boystown.”
“The kids’ happiness is our happiness,” added Sister Laresa Morasa, SM.
