Celebrate Father’s Day with Basketball Royalties » Manila Bulletin Lifestyle



Fathers are surely one of the MVPs—the most valuable persons—in our lives so come and celebrate their special day, Father’s Day, at the Araneta Center this Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. when Gateway Mall, Ali Mall, and Farmers Plaza hold activities the whole family can enjoy.

“My Dad is my MVP Father’s Day Celebration” centers on kids recognizing their dads as key role models while growing up in a world filled with challenges.  In partnership with the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), Araneta Center brings PBA MVP star Johnny “The flying A” Abarrientos, and four-time PBA MVP Alvin “The Captain” Patrimonio for fan meet at the Gateway Mall Activity Area.  Event registrants will have the chance to play a three-on-three basketball shootout with Abarrientos and Patrimonio. Another PBA MVP dad, San Miguel Beer’s Arwind Santos, will also be on hand for a meet-and-greet and another shooting game with the dads and basketball fans.

Aside from having the most MVP awards in PBA history along with Ramon Fernandez, hardcourt heartthrob Patrimonio is a basketball superstar who played for Purefoods the entire length of his career, and became team manager for the Purefoods Star Hotshots.

The event will let guests bond over basketball-themed side activities like basketball shooting arcade care of Timezone, a basketball trick show by Buhay Bola, and other games where they could win special prizes.

Only lucky Facebook user, meanwhile, will have a chance to win six  tickets to the PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals or the June 30 game at the Big Dome, as well as a group dinner from the Araneta Center. To qualify, Facebook fans must post a comment to Araneta Center’s “My Dad is my MVP” post to share why they consider their dads their MVP, and use the hashtag #MyAranetaDad Story.
