Western Union Goes To The Movies

November 1st, 2015 · No Comments


In conjunction with a Radio Pinoy promotion (98.5 FM), Western Union, leaders in money remittances, took a group of Filipinos to watch the historical film, “Heneral Luna” at Hoyts Theatres, Blacktown last Friday, 30 October 2015.

With matching yellow t-shirts blazened with “Bilib ako sa Pinoy”, and patriotism pumping through their veins,  the Western union group marched through the Hoyts Theatres to watch a slice of Philippine history.

Tickets were handed out to callers of Pinoy Radio for the last couple of weeks.  “We got a good response, said Ross Aguilar, the anchor man for Pinoy Radio.

“It was a fun night for the Filipino community.  And more importantly, it was good to be reminded of History’s lessons.” said Western Union spokesperson, Benjie de Ubago.

Unity for Purpose made it possible for the movie to be screened in Australia.  The movie was shown in Melbourne, Sydney and is scheduled for screening in Brisbane and Perth in the next few weeks.  Proceeds from the movie go to “Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid”  charity in the Philippines.
