Angel Locsin did not attend this year’s ABS-CBN Ball and instead opted to donate directly to the program’s beneficiary, Bantay Bata 163.

The actress took to Instagram on the day of the ball, yesterday, Sept. 14 to explain her absence at the event, which was held at Shangri-La at the Fort in Taguig City.

“I salute my friends at the ABS-CBN Ball who are doing their share to promote awareness on children’s rights,” she said. “And to help the beneficiaries of Bantay Bata 163 get the education that everyone deserves.”

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. For those who would like to help a child to have a bright future, please donate to Bantay Bata 163. #abscbnball2019

Locsin encouraged those who want to “help a child to have a bright future” to donate to Bantay Bata as well.

Aside from her donation yesterday, the actress previously gave scholarships to 31 students earlier this June, in celebration of amassing five million followers on her Instagram page.

The ball also honored the late Gina Lopez, founder of Bantay Bata 163. Last year, the event raised P5 million for the construction and rehabilitation of the Children’s Village in Norzagaray, Bulacan. JB
