Salto’s benefit sabong provides Parañaque school with learning tools

As a way to give back to the community, Pilmico gathered cockfighting and gamefowl breeding aficionados for the annual Salto Breeders Benefit Sabong at the Roligon Mega Cockpit, one of the country’s premier cockfighting locations.

Salto’s national endorsers from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao participated in the benefit event for Col. E. De Leon Elementary School in Parañaque City.

The event raised more than PHP200,000 and a portion of the total ticket sales were utilized three ways: 1) rehabilitation of classroom walls and other school fixtures; (2) service-learning activities; and (3) purchase of 7 units of smart TVs, and other essential school supplies. These will benefit over 600 pupils from Kindergarten to Grade 6 and encourage their studies by providing them with fundamental tools for a progressive learning experience.

Apart from this, Salto also conducted free seminars on gamefowl breeding and conditioning in Manila, Cavite, Rizal, and Bulacan, which drew over 200 endorsers and breeders.
