Publicly listed Crown Asia Chemicals Corporation, through its Crown Pipes brand of PVC, PP-R and HDPE pipes and fittings, recently participated in the Team Lakay Golf Cup to help in the rehabilitation and upgrade of Team Lakay’s facilities in La Trinidad, Benguet.
“We are one in promoting sports development in our own little way as a component of our corporate social responsibilities.” says Crown Asia’s Chairman and Pipes Group Head Walter H. Villanueva. Crown Pipes’ participation signifies its support to the Lakay MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) organization that was founded by a pool of talented athletes from the Cordillera Region.
Lakay Team provides its members opportunity to further hone their skills and discipline to become responsible and excellent Filipino athletes. Since 2006, the team has produced outstanding records in the local, national and international arena.
Our very own MMA One Lightweight World Champion Eduard “Landslide” Folayong, is a proud member of Team Lakay. A former high school teacher turned athlete, he quickly made a name for himself as a knockout artist and tough competitor. Danny Lakap Kingad is another outstanding member who has remained undefeated since becoming an MMA athlete. MMA members Honorio Banario (another former champion) and Joms Pa-acski attended the event.
Crown Pipes believes that the strength, precision, stamina, endurance and discipline by excellent achievers in sports are the same exacting features associated with the brand and its products. Crown Pipes actively supports golf and bowling programs of architects, engineers and other industry players. It has supported some international matches of boxing champion Manny Pacquiao and international lady bowler Liza del Rosario, many badminton tournaments, various Runs for A Cause and other sports endeavors.
The Team Lakay Golf Cup held last June 2, 2017 was organized by Suntrust Properties Inc. with SPI Contractors. Suntrust President Atty. Harry Paltongan formalized an agreement of commitment and support for the Team to promote sports and develop world class athletes among the Cordillera youth.
Other Members of Team Lakay are Coach Marquez Sangiao, Denver Labador, Honorio Banario, Kevin Belingon, Roy Docyogen, Gina Iniong, April Osenio, Geje Eustaquio, Edward Kelly and Joshua Felix Pacio.
Crown Asia Chemicals Corporation will continue to extend its support to worthwhile projects that would benefit sports development and education, humanitarian and charity projects that promote the well-being of people, communities and our environment.
