True to its theme of gratitude and togetherness, Kapamilya and some of the Kapuso and Kapatid stars have gathered together at this year's ABS-CBN Ball. 

Apart from your favorite ABS-CBN artists, a couple of celebrities and executives from the TV5 and GMA Networks have attended the ABS-CBN Ball—the most anticipated event of the year in showbiz, especially after its three-year hiatus. 

The affair took place on Saturday, Sept. 30 at Makati Shangri-La Hotel, and it was hosted by Bianca Gonzalez and Edward Barbers together with the editors of Metro Magazine

E.A.T host Ryan Agoncillo joined his wife Judy Ann Santos, wearing a matching black and white ensemble.

Kapuso executives were also present at the event, including GMA Films and GMA Worldwide president Atty. Annette Gozon-Valdes with her father, GMA chairman and CEO Felipe Gozon wearing a matching all-white ensemble. Atty. Annette wore a white, wrap-around dress with a human-bust figure on the side by Noel Estopito. The chairman, meanwhile, donned a classic barong.

TV5 newscaster and Drag Race Philippines judge Kaladkaren also attended the said event in a baby pink asymmetric dress.


This marks the first time that ABS-CBN has held this annual event since 2019. It was halted in 2020 and 2021 due to the restrictions of the pandemic and the loss of its franchise. It was supposed to return in 2022 but didn’t push through. 

The proceeds gathered from this event will be donated to the network’s foundation, such as Sagip Kapamilya, Bantay Bata 163, Programa Genio, and Bantay Kalikasan.
