CJ Perez adds to PBA day-to-day employees fund, donates 25K

CJ Perez is the latest PBA player to extend a helping hand to the league personnel affected by the suspension of the season due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a short yet meaningful post on social media platform Instagram on Thursday morning, the 2019 Rookie of the Year wrote that he is donating Php 25,000 to the affected employees.

“I’m donating 25,000 to our PBA Family,” the Columbian Dyip star wrote through his official IG account @cjayp7.

The post comes with a photo that says: “First off, thank you to the PBA brotherhood for stepping up. To all the game-day employees, we’re all in this together.

“This is bigger than basketball.”

Perez is the latest to pledge a donation to personnel who are paid on a per-game basis such as statisticians, table officials, entertainment personnel, parking, and operations personnel.

On Twitter Wednesday, Meralco Bolts veteran Cliff Hodge and Chris Ross of the San Miguel Beermen pledged PHP 20,000 each to the drive started by Alaska Aces head coach Jeff Cariaso.

The veteran bench tactician, meanwhile, has pledged to donate PHP 100,000. His goal is to cover at least two months’ worth of wages of the personnel affected by the season’s suspension.

Half of Cariaso’s pledge is coming from the Aces organization, while PHP 25,000 comes from team governor Dickie Bachmann. Another PHP 25,000 comes from Cariaso himself.
