ABS-CBN threw a formal cocktail party at the NBC Tent at the Bonifacio Global City on Wednesday night for exclusive guests of advertisers and ad agency executives. Notwithstanding the heavy downpour, invitees trooped to the party to see their favorite actors and actresses perform and to preview the current and upcoming shows on the network.

ABS-CBN executives led by chairman Gabby Lopez mingled with the crowd as free-flowing wine and liquor were served together with a sumptuous buffet. Chefs Rolando Laudico, Fernando Aracama and Jayps Anglo of the show 'MasterChef Pinoy Edition' also served a sampling of their hors d'oeuvres to the appreciative crowd.

The night's highlights were different song and dance numbers from the actors and actresses of the network's shows. Participants from the audience were also pre-selected before the night and they did not disappoint the crowd as they gamely took part in numbers together with their favorite personalities.

The show was topbilled by the upcoming teleserye ''A Beautiful Affair,' starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo. The on-screen couple's teleserye follows their highly successful team-up in 'The Mistress,' which is already the top-grossing movie of the year.
