Dear Fellow ADMU employees,

The Intramural Athletic Club (IAC) of the Ateneo de Manila College will 
be hosting the 3-on-3 Basketball Association (3BA) 2004 Ateneo IAC 
Tournament on Wednesday, November 17 and Wednesday, November 24 at the 
Ateneo de Manila College Covered Courts. The event will be open 
primarily to Ateneo de Manila college students and Ateneo employees. The 
project is for the benefit of the Tulong-Dunong Scholarship Program.

Since 1975 when the program was established by Fr. James O' Brien, SJ, 
TD has produced about a thousand scholars from the Ateneo, Miriam 
College, St. Scholastica's Academy (Marikina), St. Bridget's School, St. 
Paul's College (QC), and St. Joseph's College. Currently, there are 130 
scholars from first year high school to fourth year college that the 
program is supporting.

Ten years after Fr. O'Brien's death, the TD program continues to take up 
the challenge from where he left off. Unfortunately, the charisma of Fr. 
O'Brien that has attracted benefactors and supporters is sorely missed. 
As such, serious funding for the program has become a more real and 
pressing concern as the number of scholars the program supports has 
dwindled every year. Attached for your reference is a more detailed 
write-up on the TD program.

In its own small way, the IAC hopes to support this program that has 
made a difference in so many people's lives and has been an integral 
part of the Ateneo de Manila High School's educational program for 
several years. If you would like to support the IAC and the TD program 
by participating in the event, you may get a copy of the registration 
form from the IAC board located in front of the college cafeteria.

For any questions on the 3BA 2004 Ateneo IAC tournament, please contact 
the IAC thru Mr. Chiqui Paterno at cell phone no. 0917-5337778 or Mr. 
Ron Panilinan at cell phone no. 0919-5502594. For any questions on the 
TD Program, please call Mr. Sio Marquez at cell phone no. 0917-8121320.

Sincerely yours,

Director- Loyola Schools, PE Program
