At the Deer Island Community School beginning on April 17th 2013, FANB-DI hosted the opening games of what would turn to be 4 intense nights of competition, sportsmanship and above all community building with the residents of Deer Island.
The event was made possible due to the cooperation of the Paturel International Company, where a number of the Filipino participants work. The additional sponsorship was from number of private individuals, and also with the help from the Multicultural Association of Charlotte County.
On the night of the opening games, FANB-DI presented an opening ceremony that consisted of the singing of the Canadian and Philippine national anthems lead by Mr. Grant Leslie and Grace Allosada, followed by an opening remark from the FANB-DI President Averosa Esparagoza. An inspirational talk was given by the HR Manager of Paturel international Company, Mr. Jody Cline, and Production Manager Ms. Dee Richardson which promises the committee to support the sportsfest every year. Mrs. Alma Bulasa was the Master of the Ceremony. Closing remarks was given by the FANB-DI Vice-President Charina Maravillas. Special thanks was given also to the Chairman on Sports Jonathan Valmores and all the volunteers of the Sportsfest.
From 6pm in the evening, until 9pm, on April 17th, 19th, 22nd and 24th, 3 Volleyball and 3 Basketball teams consisting of native Deer Island residents and FANB-DI members, playing side by side, competed in the very first annual FANB-DI Sportsfest.
