Pasig vice mayor to auction motorcycle, mountain bike to raise COVID-19 funds

Pasig City Vice Mayor Bernardo will auction his expensive motorcycle and mountain bike as he continues to raise funds for their city.

Bernardo will auction his Kawasaki Vulcan S-650 and Giant Talon Mountain Bike through his Facebook account. Proceeds will go to cancer and dialysis patients and “Heart Warrior” children.

The Vice Mayor first launched his fundraising campaign called “Sneakers Auction for a Cause” in March. It is to help Pasig purchase personal protective equipment, hygiene kits, food packs, and other essential items for its frontliners and low-income families.

Bernardo’s auction was able to raise P340,000 to augment the prevention efforts of Pasig. He then expanded the sale by including sports memorabilia and other valuable items so people with different interests and passion could also join. 

“Marami po ang nagtulong-tulong para mas maraming matulungan ang “Sneakers Atbp.
