PBA legends grateful for OKBet support


Living up to its status as a big friend of Philippine sports, the gaming platform OKBet and the PBA Legends Foundation Inc. successfully held the 2nd PBA Legends Charity Golf Tournament on May 9, 2023, at the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club in Carmona, Cavite.

The 18-hole event was attended by a bevy of basketball personalities, supporters, and other public figures, such as PBA Legends Foundation Inc. Chairman Atoy Co, President Alvin Patrimonio, Corporate Secretary Ed Cordero, Treasurer Jojo Lastimosa, and Board Members Ramon Fernandez and Kenneth Duremdes, who dedicated their time to making the event a resounding success.

“[The] main purpose of this tournament is to help yung mga kapwa ko dating manlalaro ng PBA na nangangailangan ng tulong-pinansyal sa kanilang medical needs. We formed this foundation, para kami-kami talaga ang magtulungan sa mga pangangailan ng bawat isa,” said Co.

All proceeds raised from the tournament, as well as future projects, will fund various beneficial projects of the PBA Legends Foundation.

One of the tournament sponsors, Edmund Yee, emerged as the Overall Low Gross Champion, scoring a net 70.

“I’m happy with the success of the tournament, bonus na lang na nanalo ako. I’m one of the sponsors, so noong lumapit sila sa akin, with no hesitation nag-go ako kasi it’s for the benefits of the ex-PBAs,” said Yee.

During the fellowship and awarding ceremony, OKBet expressed its pride in partnering with the foundation and reiterated its commitment to promoting the local sports industry and giving back to the Filipino community.
