UPDATED: There Will Be A Memorial Service For The Late Gina Lopez At ABS-CBN
Gina Lopez’s memorial service has been moved from La Mesa Dam to ABS-CBN Studio 10 due to weather
UPDATE (8/21/19, 12PM): The public viewing of Gina Lopez on August 22 and 23 has been moved from the La Mesa Eco Park Amphitheater to Studio 10 at ABS-CBN.
In 1999, Gina Lopez created Bantay Kalikasan as a means to educate Filipinos about ecological concerns and safeguarding the environment, but more than spread awareness, it created tangible solutions through different projects—including rehabilitation of the La Mesa Dam.
Twenty years later in the early hours of August 19, 2019, the philanthropist succumbed to multiple organ failure. To celebrate her well-lived life and the indelible mark she had left in the hearts of Filipinos, there will be a memorial service for the public at the La Mesa Eco Park on August 22 to 23. Viewing time is from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
In lieu of flowers and mass cards, the Lopez family requests that donations be made to the ABS-CBN Foundation, which will be vital in continuing the work that Gina has started and has made her life's mission.
