Angel Locsin has opted to skip the ABS-CBN ball and donate what she could’ve spent on the event directly to its beneficiary, Bantay Bata 163.
In an Instagram post Saturday (September 14), Locsin said her money would be “more of use” by going to Bantay Bata 163 instead of glamming up for the highly anticipated ball.
“I salute my friends at the ABS-CBN Ball who are doing their share to promote awareness on children’s rights and to help the beneficiaries of Bantay Bata 163 get the education that everyone deserves,” she wrote.
“As for me, I decided to do my share in a way that I could probably be more of use. I think it would be better for me to donate directly to Bantay Bata the amount that I’m supposed to spend in the ball. It’s not much, but will help make a difference to someone else’s life,” Locsin added.
Bantay Bata 163 is part of the ABS-CBN Foundation, which aims to rescue children in distress.
It was founded by the late ABS-CBN Foundation chairperson and Environmental Secretary Gina Lopez.
The 2019 ABS-CBN Ball featured hundreds of Kapamilya stars rocking their best Filipiniana inspired outfits.
