ABS-CBN Ball 2018 Advocacy
The ABS-CBN Ball is not only meant to celebrate friendship but is also tied to an advocacy.
For 2018, the ABS-CBN Ball was for the benefit of relaunching the Bantay Bata 163 Children’s Village, a home to abused, exploited, and neglected children.
Stars had a blue ribbon pinned to their outfits during the event, to promote the prevention of child abuse. Blue is the international color for child abuse.
From Star Magic Ball to ABS-CBN Ball
Held at Makati Shangri-La, Manila, Philippines on September 29, 2018, the ABS-CBN Ball has successfully replaced the Star Magic Ball.
The ABS-CBN Ball is more inclusive since stars who are not under the management of Star Magic were also invited. Thus, ABS-CBN stars like Vice Ganda, James Reid, and Nadine Lustre, were able to attend the festive event.
More than 600 guests were reportedly invited to the ball, and about 300 graced the red carpet.
