This year a basketball friendship game entitled “Northside Basketball Action (NBA) Inter Color Tournament” was organized with other Northside Regions of the Greater Brisbane area. The said sports event aims to select a team to represent the Northside Basketball Squad which will compete against other Regional teams of Southeast Queensland. The winning team will compete in a bigger tournament covering Interstate and Oceanic basketball competitions, like in New Zealand in October next year. This gives the Filipinos the chance to represent their adopted country in a recognized sporting event in the future.
Ms. Maria Rowena Fairhall, one of our dedicated agents in Brisbane, Australia sponsored one of the teams, “Yummychow Team” and won the first game against Taxation Business Services Team, score 46-27. This was held last July 29, 2007 at Pathways Sports Complex, North Lakes, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Ms. Fairhall expressed “…it is my intention to put our names (Yummy Chow/I-Remit) across Queensland and eventually interstate and hopefully, give my sponsorship up to the highest level that it can possibly go”. Her sponsorship gave I-Remit the needed exposure to market our products and services not only in Brisbane but other states as well.
