Held last December 14, Thursday, at the Dolphy Theater inside the ABS-CBN Studios in Quezon City, the event kicked off with a video montage of Kapamilya celebrities greeting and thanking the press for their enduring support to their projects and the network. An “in memoriam” video also gave tribute to the members of the press who passed away in recent years.
