There was no sign of weariness from Creamline’s debut loss when star players Alyssa Valdez and Michele Gumabao attended the annual ABS-CBN Ball 2018 yesterday night.
Straight from a sorry five-setter loss against PetroGazz, Valdez and Gumabao rushed from Imus City to the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangri-La Hotel and joined the Kapamilya stars as they celebrated glitz and glamour with a cause.
Setting aside their volleyball jerseys for a while, Valdez wore a glittery off-shoulder dress by Rosenthal Tee while Gumabao went with Nat Manilag’s flesh-tone gown.
The 25-year old Valdez, who erupted for 26 points, was escorted by her long-time boyfriend and NLEX basketball player Kiefer Ravena, who stunned as well in a suit and tie.

The Cool Smashers succumbed to the Angels in five sets, 25-27, 25-17, 23-25, 25-19, 5-15, to open their Premiere Volleyball League Open Conference campaign with a loss.
This year’s Ball aimed to promote awareness and help the Bantay Bata 163’s campaign on the worrying issue of the country’s abused, exploited, and neglected children.
