Angel Locsin skips the ABS-CBN Ball 2019 for a good reason

Angel Locsin directly donates to Bantay Bata ‘the amount that she’s supposed to spend in the ball’.

Angel Locsin decided to skip the ABS-CBN Ball 2019, which aims to raise funds this year for the Bantay Edukasyon program of Bantay Bata 163.

In a post on Instagram on the night of the event, Angel explained why she was absent at the 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.

“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.”

She also encouraged her followers to donate to Bantay Bata 163, “to help a child have a bright future.”

“For those who would like to help a child to have a bright future, please donate to Bantay Bata 163,” she concluded.

The ABS-CBN Ball held at the Shangri-La at the Fort is a yearly event that brings together almost all biggest and brightest stars in the industry. This year’s theme was “Modern Filipiniana” to coincide with ASB-CBN’s 65th anniversary.

Proceeds from the ABS-CBN Ball 2019 will be used for the benefit of Bantay Bata, an ABS-CBN Foundation program that helps disadvantaged and at-risk children.
