Clothing Company and MTV, in cooperation with GlaxoSmithKline organized "Laban Ni Maria: Rocking Against Cervical Cancer” concert and fashion show last September 23 at Eastwood. Bands like Imago, Pupil, and Brigada, plus the son of the late Francis Magalona, Elmo Magalona rocked the crowd with their live performances for the sake of the fight against cervical cancer.

Fashion played a big role in this event, as one of the highlights that night was a fashion show that showcased Laban Ni Maria shirts by 3 Stars And A Sun to promote and encourage everyone to purchase the special edition graphic shirts.
