Ravena and Valdez, both two-time UAAP Most Valuable Players’ in men’s basketball and women’s volleyball respectively, will be joined by Gretchen Ho, Denden Lazaro, Michele Gumabao and Charo Soriano in the charity match geared to raise funds for those affected by the recent calamity.

Game time is set at 2:00pm, with Ravena and Valdez each leading their own team in a best-of-five affair.

“We want to help them in the spirit of Christmas,” said Smart Elite ambassador Ravena, who has also successfully organized charity events for victims of typhoons Sendong and Yolanda in the past. “We hope they won’t be too devastated by what happened and this is one way of making them happy this Christmas.”
