Last June 11, 2005, iRemit participated in the Independence Day Barrio Fiesta at the Plaza of Nations. It was the first time for iRemit to join in Vancouver’s Independence Day celebration but it was one well attended event. The activities for the day included free items upon registration, acceptance of transactions and raffling off of free iRemit Visa Electron Cards. Visitors enjoyed the roleta as they spin the wheel for free pens, pillows, bags and umbrellas! It was one event enjoyed by children, veterans and Filipinos across all ages.
