We all look at SM as the big corporate giant that sucks in all the cash and things like that… but SM also has a soft side that helps people. Business is business, but that doesnt mean you cant help, right?
A couple of departments of SM, which is SM Cares and the SM Lifestyle Entertainment and the Bowling Center banded together to help host the Best Buddies Bowling tournament for PWD’s in SM North Edsa last week. The event was participated in by 35 people with their families in attendance.
The event was the brainchild project of Best Buddies International a new non profit group in the Philippines with roots abroad that helps foster friendships for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Best Buddies hold quarterly events for PWD’s and the last quarter event will be its Christmas Party.
During the event we were also able to interview the division manger for SM bowling and Leisure center CJ Suarez and got to ask him about the event with Best Buddies…BTW – CJ is one of our World Cup Bowling champions in Tegucigalpa, Honduras in 2003.
CJ notes that it was a nice activity for SM to support bowling for the Best Buddies advocacy since it promotes the sport itself, camaraderie, and friendship among the players.
By the way – SM is hosting the biggest bowling event ever starting in November for the qualifying rounds with2 Million pesos cash and a Brand New Car for the winner!.. 500,000 php for the 2nd place, all this to celebrate the 25th anniversary of SM Bowling.
