- About Donna
Donna Cruz celebrated her grand, star-studded 18th birthday at the Isla Ballroom of the EDSA Shangri-la Plaza Hotel last February 11th, 1995.
Although her actual birthday is on the 14th of February (yes Donna is a Valentines baby), they decided to have the celebration on the 11th so that her friends, relatives, and other important guests will be able to celebrate Valentines’ Day on the 14th. Escorting Donna – as expected – is onscreen loveteam partner Ian De Leon.
Boss Vic Del Rosario and German Moreno jointly offered a toast in celebration of Donna’s turning 18.
The 18th birthday dance list
Donna’s first dance is her dad, Renato Yrastorza, followed by the ultimate boss of VIVA Films Vic Del Rosario, and then Donna’s brother Jomar Cruz, and finally Ian. Other stars / male friends of Donna followed suit- Keempee De Leon, Janno Gibbs, Smokey Manaloto, Wowie and Patrick Cruz, Dale Villar, Lander Vera Perez, Ace Cruz, Richard De Dios (also known as Paking in Villa Quintana), Gerard Fainsan (from the Universal Motion Dancers), Nino Alejandro, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Raffy Rodriguez, Rustom Padilla, and Andrew E.
Donna’s 18th birthday wish
Donna frankly expresses her wish- to win an award (film award)- though she says being nominated is already good enough for her and will already be an honor.
Thank you Jocelyn Lalu and Evelyn Pagalan.
