GMA Artist Center talent Bea Binene celebrated a meaningful 16th birthday at the Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila on November 13 as she dedicated her celebration to help raise funds for the victims of the typhoon Yolanda.
Bea, who is an active volunteer of GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF), personally requested her guests to help her spur hope among Filipinos who were greatly affected by the super typhoon. One of her sponsors gave a P200,000 donation to GMAKF as a birthday gift for the Kapuso home-grown actress.
Bea further announced she and her fellow Kapuso stars Barbie Forteza, Yassi Pressman, Joyce Ching, Krystal Reyes, Jake Vargas and other Tween Hearts cast members agreed to hold a garage sale whose proceeds will also be donated to GMA’s socio-civic arm. She is currently auctioning some of her items via Instagram as well.
One of the things Bea is grateful for is her ability to help. “Kaya patuloy akong nagpapasalamat sa Diyos dahil ginagawa niya akong instrument para makatulong sa mga kapwa kong nangangailangan. I would also like to thank the people who shared their time and gave donations para sa mga naapektuhan ng bagyo. Malaki ang maitutulong nito sa muli nilang pagbangon,” she related.
Bea is currently part of Vampire ang Daddy Ko and Sunday All Stars on GMA Network.
