It’s back and it’s better than ever! After the successful SMART Ultimate All Star Weekend in 2011 comes another must-see event from MVP Sports Foundation, Sports5 and PLDTHome.
On July 22 and 23, get ready to watch a spectacular show as “PLDTHome: The Last Home Stand All-Star Charity Event” brings together some of the biggest sports superstars from the Philippines and the United States in an event for the benefit of the recent disaster survivors.
Watch our homegrown Gilas Pilipinas heroes Jimmy Alapag, Jayson Castro William, Ranidel De Ocampo, Gabe Norwood and Mark Pingris bring their game on as they train with top US basketball coach John Lucas and professional cagers like Blake Griffin, DeMar DeRozan, Paul Pierce and Damian Lillard. This is, of course, in preparation for the Gilas Pilipinas national team’s journey to the FIBA World Cup in Spain.
“This is the best send-off game we can give to our Filipino fans who have been fervently following and cheering for Gilas Pilipinas. I hope the love and support for the team continues as we enter the biggest battle of our lives in Spain,” Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes said.
The all-stars charity event will also feature the John Lucas Skills Camp, slam dunk exhibition, three-point shootout and the Air Elite Dunkers. It will be held on July 22 and 23 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. Tickets start at P750, available at all Ticketnet outlets. For more information, check out lasthomestand.pldthome.com
