Maja Salvador said she is proud of boyfriend Gerald Anderson’s passion for charity. Maja, who was spotted on the sidelines of the recently concluded Hero Ball basketball tournament organized by Gerald at the Makati Coliseum, said she was very happy to have been part of the event.
“Siguro pang third time ko palang siya napapanood magbasketball. Siyempre nakakatuwa na napapanood ko yung mga ibang talent niya hindi lang puro acting. Eto naman basta sobrang love niya yung pagba-basketball,” she said, adding, “I’m happy na naka-attend ako sa event na nagawa niya.”
Maja confessed to being blown away by Gerald’s kindness as profits from the event would be for the benefit of Hero Foundation, an organization aiming to provide secured and consistent educational support for children of soldiers from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).
“Yes for Hero Foundation. Nung nalaman ko nga eh sinabi ko nga ‘Grabe itong taong ‘to. Parang he’s [just] out there to share his blessings,’” quipped the dancer-actress.
Meanwhile, for her part, Maja related that she’s thrilled about the seventh Star Magic Ball happening on September 7. “Pag may time magte-treadmill lang siyempre ikaw mismo yung mga kinakain mo, yung meals mo ikaw mismo [ang magmo-monitor]. Kailangan for Star Magic Ball,” she said.
While she didn’t categorically confirm that the OTJ star would be her date for the ball, she noted, in a separate ABS-CBN News report, that, “Exciting ang Star Magic Ball for me this year. Hindi pa niya (Anderson) nakikita ['yung gown ko]. Hindi ko pa rin nakikita 'yung isusuot niya. Siyempre, maganda 'yung may surprise.” Cebu-based international designer Cary Santiago will be making her gown for the Star magic Ball.
“…'Yung mga ginagawan niya ng gowns sina Ms. Charo Santos, Kris Aquino, Ruffa Gutierrez. 'Yung beauties nila talagang royal so feeling ko kahit paano lumelevel ako sa kanila,” added the actress.
