Much-awaited best-dressed women of the Philippines

I’m counting down the days ‘til it’s time for the Philippine Cancer Society’s highly anticipated Best Dressed Women of the Philippines Awards Ball. It’s always a must for me to attend and support it because this foundation never ceases to go above and beyond to support our kababayans in need.

It’s not just a chance to recognize the deserving ladies who have achieved a lot and left a positive mark in society, but also to raise funds so that the Philippine Cancer Society can continue its good work.

As we prepare for the big event, we had the chance to meet this year’s awardees over an Afternoon Tea at Shangri-La The Fort, Manila. I won’t spoil you with the who’s who yet. My lips are sealed! But let’s just say I was really excited to meet the fresh faces! The Men of Influence and Ambassadors for Life also joined our fun little meet and greet and it was a really great opportunity to bond.

My hats go off to the one and only Tita Helen Ong and all the hardworking people who are making sure that this year’s ball continues to be a success. Likewise, even us attending will also make sure that the Philippine Cancer Society gets the support it deserves through this event. I can’t wait for 27 September to see all the fabulous looks our honorees will be wearing and for the milestones we’ll make that night.

Speaking of fabulous looks, let me check on mine for the big night. Stay tuned to see it.
