"[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 other future projects will fund various benefit projects of the PBA Legends Foundation.

One of the tournament sponsors, Edmund Yee, emerged as the overall low gross champion with a 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-PBA players,” said Yee.
