For the past two years, the Philracom-sponsored Tumbok Cup charity race has been held at Santa Ana Park. After their first visit to San Lazaro Leisure Park last May 9, the Tumbok staff have decided to shift the venue of the 2007 edition of their race to SLLP.
Tentatively set for July 8, the Tumbok Cup will donate the proceeds of the P300,000 sponsorship package to charity. The race will also have a social advocacy side in that some provision will also be made for a designated beneficiary within the racing industry.
While the previous Tumbok Cups have focused on apprentices, the staff, primarily Imee Alcantara (VP-Operations), Roni Briones (Managing Editor), and Gigi Tejada (Marketing Supervisor), are now looking to benefit other groups like grooms, helpers, and exercise riders. ***
