Piolo Pascual led the Star Magic Ball 2017 donation of P1 million to Bantay Bata Foundation

More than just gathering over 700 individuals composed of its roster of prized talents and distinguished guests for a night of merriment and glamour under one roof, the 11th Star Magic Ball became a celebration and an avenue of honoring unparalleled passion, notable contributions and worthy causes.

In keeping with the tradition, the ball paid tribute to a moving force in the entertainment industry—this year it was Star Creatives’ Chief Operating Officer Malou Santos.

But, the highlight of the momentous occasion was the surprise recognition for Star Magic’s father, Johnny “Mr. M” Manahan, for his incalculable contribution to the showbiz industry and for his matchless mentoring and support to the Star Magic talents then and now.

Apart from gathering and honoring the movers and shakers of the local entertainment scene, the Star Magic Ball also became significant after a donation amounting to P 1,000,000 was given to the Bantay Bata Foundation led by the Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual, in celebration of the organization’s 20th anniversary.
