    A return to the PBA Philippine Cup finals and a donation worth P100,000.

    June Mar Fajardo completed both on Wednesday night as San Miguel made short work of Meralco, 100-89, in their do-or-die clash to clinch the last berth in the best-of-seven title series.

    At the start of the season, the Cebuano giant promised to donate P200 for every point he will score, P100 for every rebound he made, and P1,000 for every three-point converted.
