    June Mar Fajardo fulfills his promise to late mom.

    IT’s a strong start for San Miguel Beer and a fine result for June Mar Fajardo’s chosen charity.

    Fajardo, who is donating P200 for every point he scores this season to a charity that he will pick in coordination with the PBA, scored 24 in the Beermen’s 108-100 victory over Phoenix in the PBA Philippine Cup at the Araneta Coliseum.

    The numbers could have been bigger, with Fajardo pledging P1,000 for every three-pointer he makes, but the SMB big man did not try one shot from beyond the arc in their opening game of the PBA’s 47th season.

    Fajardo is also donating P100,000 if the Beermen reach the finals.

    The six-time MVP said the move was a promise he made to his mother that he will help less fortunate individuals. Fajardo’s mother passed away last year.
