Interaksyon.com reports a basketball game for a cause titled “A Day Of Love: Stephon Marbury Gives Back” will be held at the AIMS covered court in Pasay City on August 7, 2013 at 6pm.

Their objective is to raise funds for the benefit of the National Press Club of the Philippines and its adopted charity, the Ahon Pamilyang Lansangan Foundation which helps less fortunate families and children.

Marbury and Taulava, the report said, will lead Team RockStar featuring several PBA and ABL stars namely Dondon Hontiveros, Ronald Tubid, Dorian Pena, Willie Miller, Alex Crisano, Chris Ross, Billy Mamaril, Renren Ritualo, and Harvey Carey, as well as Sol Mercado, who will call the shots from the sidelines.

They will go up against the Barako Bull Energy Cola from the PBA. Also participating will be ABL players Leo Avenido and Jai Reyes of the Saigon Heat.

A portion of the funds to be raised will go to the Asian Institute of Maritime Studies, where Marbury held a meet and greet event for fans during his June visit, for campus improvements.

Tickets for the charity game are being sold at P200 and P500 each, the report said.
