“Tulad nga ng sabi nila (Like what they say), at the end of the day, have courage and be kind and that’s what Senator Grace has been doing,” said Evangelista, who also attended the event.

“She’s been kind and true to herself and she served as an inspiration sa lahat (to all)…”

“Congratulations Senator Grace at sa lahat ng mga sumusuporta sa kanya at maraming salamat din sa lahat ng mga tao na ginawa kung ano ang tama (and to all her supporters and thank you very much to all the people who did what was right),” the actress added. CDG
