Manny Pacquiao brought an old style kind of class, with integrity and love for his fellow human being last Tuesday night, reminiscent of Joe Lewis, to the 125 VIPs who came to the Beverly Hills estate of Victorino Noval. "The guests really responded to Manny, they opened their wallets and their hearts, the boxing shorts from the Tim Bradley fight alone brought in $40,000," Victorino said. “Pacquaio is a favorite to become President of the Philippines. Like Bill Clinton with his saxophone moment, when he sang from his heart on stage, you could tell he is a real crooner.

Manny said, “I am looking forward to the birth of my fifth child. He said, “One thing for sure, I would never want my children to box . At 12 years old I was the breadwinner for my family. I had no choice but fight to survive. My good fortune has enabled me to ask my children not to do as I did but rather that they work hard to serve their country and help contribute to humanity.

He continued, “I would like to see a Philippines where no one has to struggle as I did as a child.”. He confided in me, “Sometimes my opponents try to take advantage of me because they know I am a politician and a humanitarian, and think it shows a softness, but they don’t understand.” Manny showed us his strength as a human being and a leader tonight, and he has a bunch of new fans in Beverly Hills.

Noval added,“This is a pre-event to a much larger event that will be at The Vineyard, where the FAME AND PHILANTHROPY Oscar night event with James Cameron, Halle Berry and Charlize Thereon was held, which will include a concert for the victims of the Typhoon.
