2019 ABS-CBN Ball set for Sept. 14
MANILA, Philippines — The much-awaited 2019 ABS-CBN Ball set to happen this September 14 will gather stars for the benefit of children’s education.
ABS-CBN announced Wednesday that charity ball will give celebrities a chance to grant scholarships to underprivileged kids through Bantay Bata 163’s Bantay Education program.
Through the program, beneficiaries will be given the chance to have a normal education as complete tuition assistance, meal and transportation allowances, school supplies and other fees will be covered.
The ball will also honor Gina Lopez, founder of ABS-CBN Foundation and Bantay Bata 163 who initiated the rescue of thousands of children from physical and sexual abuse.
Last year, the ball was able to raise P5 million which was used for the construction and rehabilitation of the Children’s Village in Norzagaray, Bulacan.
Formerly known as the Star Magic Ball, the event changed its name to accommodate more personalities.
