CEBU CITY, Philippines – The Cebu City Government through the Cebu City Sports Commission (CCSC) is organizing a symbolic sendoff for Cebuano athletes and officials who are bound for Luzon to compete in the 30th Southeast Asian Games (SEAG).

The sendoff which will be held Tuesday, November 26, 2019, will start with a 5 p.m. Mass and will be followed with a dinner that will be held at the dancesport studio located beside the swimming pool of the Cebu City Sports Center.
