Yevgeny Vincente Emano (2nd District, Misamis Oriental) won the basketball game amid strong crowd support from members of the Filipino community in Guam.  Proceeds of donations gathered during the event were donated to the Consulate General of Japan in Guam to help victims of the earthquake and tsunami disasters.
