“Huuuuuge thanks to big brother @DamianLillard for sending over such a generous amount, kahit na wala siya sa (despite that he’s nowhere in the) Pilipinas, just to be able to help,” wrote Pressman in an Instagram post on May 29.

Pressman has been raising funds through social media for the repair of PGH that was gutted by a fire last May 16, already generating over P1 million.

The actress also thanked those who pitched in their donations for the repair of the PGH.

Lillard started his NBA career in the 2012-2013 season and unanimously bagged the Rookie of the Year award. His career average is 24.7 point per game in the regular season. He currently plays for the Portland Trail Blazers. SOVEREIGNPH
