MANILA, Philippines - New PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa serves as the guest speaker of the PBA Press Corps (PBAPC) as it holds its Annual Awards Night tomorrow at the Century Park Hotel.

Under the leadership of the former PBA player, the Beermen went 2-for 3 last season by winning the Philippine Cup and the Governors’ Cup, respectively.

Likewise to be honored is 40th season chairman Pato Gregorio with the “Danny Floro” Executive of the Year award.
