Yesterday, September 12, "The Hows Of Us" celebrated its continuous success through the Thanksgiving event held at ABS-CBN.
The dinner party was led by the film's stars Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, together with the supporting cast Susan Africa, Alwyn Uytingco, Ria Atayde, Juan Miguel Severo, Darren Espanto, Kit Thompson, Katsumi Kabe, and Sed Gothico.
The film director Cathy Garcia-Molina wasn't able to attend but she was still part of the celebration through a video call.

ABS-CBN bosses, namely President and CEO Carlo L. Katigbak, Chairman Mark Lopez, Chief of Staff Linggit Tan, Chief Finance Officer Aldrin Cerrado, and Star Cinema's Managing Director Olivia M. Lamasan, were also present in the event.
The people who worked behind the cameras of "The Hows Of Us" also joined the gathering.
One of the highlights last night were Kathryn and Daniel's heartfelt speeches of gratitude for everyone who worked for and supported "THOU."
Here are our fave moments from their speeches:
Darren definitely impressed his Kuya Daniel.
Daniel also remembered the hard work of "The Hows Of Us" promo team.
His message for his lady love brought tears to everyone.
Kathryn, on the other hand, revealed how Inang motivated them through the entire journey of filming "THOU."
Kathryn also thanked Star Cinema creative heads Vanessa Valdez and Carmi Raymundo for believing in her talent.
Kathryn built a beautiful friendship with the cast, especially with Ria, Juan Miguel, and Darren.
During her speech, Kathryn turned emotional when she talked about her personal struggles prior to "The Hows Of Us."
It wasn't easy but she accepted the challenge.
Thanks to Direk Cathy for never giving up on her.
And of course, Inang.
Kathryn also did not forget to mention how much she appreciates her Tangi.
And lastly, Kathryn expressed her gratitude to the real reason of the celebration.
To everyone who gave "The Hows Of Us" a chance, maraming, maraming salamat po! 💙
