Judy Ann Santos has decided to auction off the two red-carpet gowns she wore at the ABS-CBN Ball, for the benefit of Bantay Bata Foundation.
On Saturday night, September 14, Judy Ann graced the Kapamilya network's annual charity event, which was held at the grand ballroom of Shangri-La at the Fort in Bonifacio Global City.
Accompanied by her husband Ryan Agoncillo, Judy Ann looked lovely in her black Filipiniana designed by Yong Davalos.
Right after the event, Judy Ann made an announcement on Instagram that she will auction off her gown and the emerald green Oscar dela Renta gown she wore at the ABS-CBN Ball 2018, held in Makati Shangri-La on September 29, 2018.
She wrote, "I will auction this Yong Davalos black gown and this Oscar De La Renta emerald green gown beginning tomorrow, for Bantay Bata. Standby for bidding details. Thank you! @officialjuday"

For both looks, Judy Ann was styled by Pam Quinones and Qurator Studio.
In an Instagram video, Judy Ann revealed the starting bid for both gowns.
"Just a little announcement po mga Kapamilya at sa mga nag-aabang ng ABS-CBN Ball, I realized that this is a Bantay Bata Foundation project or charity event, and it's a once a year event na ginagawa ng ABS-CBN, I've decided to auction off this gown. It will start at PHP20,000.
"And then, the Oscar de la Renta gown na sinuot ko last year, which is the emerald green, the starting cost will be PHP50,000.
"We will announce kung paano po at kailan magsisimula ang auction. And all proceeds will go to Bantay Bata."
The donation will be her simple way of paying tribute to the late founder of Bantay Bata 163, Ms. Gina Lopez.
"That would be our little gesture of appreciation, of support to Bantay Bata, and of course, for Ms. Gina Lopez. Ito po ay para sa kanya, ito po ay inihahandog naming mag-asawa para sa Bantay Bata, para makatulong kami in our own little way."
The ABS-CBN Ball 2019 is for the benefit of Bantay Bata 163. This year focuses on the Bantay Edukasyon Program.
