Ravena brothers Kiefer and Thirdy, LA Tenorio, and many more standouts from Ateneo de Manila University are getting together for a greater cause.
The Ravenas and Tenorio are among a handful of former Blue Eagles who have donated their uniforms and other personal items to be auctioned off in the Blue Legacy Auction launching on Tuesday.
The Blue Legacy Auction will be held online over at the Auctions Manila Facebook page and will feature jerseys from Katipunan greats, past and present.
The proceeds will then go directly to the Ateneo High School Scholarships which is responsible for granting financial aid for student-athletes.
Bannering the cause is the elder Ravena who will put up for grabs a dark uniform he played in during his rookie year in the PBA with NLEX.
Longtime veteran Tenorio has also donated to the event a red Ginebra jersey.
Others PBA stars involved are Gin King Japeth Aguilar; Road Warriors Rabeh Al-Husaini, Larry Fonacier, Fonzo Gotladera, Emman Monfort, and Juami Tiongson; Meralco’s Chris Newsome and Nico Salva; Phoenix’s Doug Kramer; and San Miguel’s Von Pessumal.
Katipunan’s college basketball studs are also doing their part with the younger Ravena donating sneakers to be auctioned off. He will be joined by Nieto twins Matt and Mike, Anton Asistio, Aaron Black, Isaac Go, and Tyler Tio.
The event will also have items from volleybelles Gretchen Ho, Denden Lazaro, Jia Morado, and Alyssa Valdez as well as five-time UAAP Men’s Volleyball MVP Marck Espejo and teammate Rex Intal and football phenom Jarvey Gayoso.
