UP Fighting Maroons x Palawan Express Padala: The Newest Tandem to Beat

Jamil Macapantao
The money remittance company Palawan Pawnshop got their newest ambassadors - the UP Fighting Maroons.  

Yes, this Puerto Princesa-based company just added the all-time favorite Pinoy sports basketball in their advocacy lineup. They were the sponsor of the team.

To seal their partnership, they formally had their contract signing on May 14 at the Quezon Hall of UP Diliman. Key personalities from Palawan Express Padala and the team members and coaches of the UP Fighting Maroons graced the event together with the chosen bloggers and media who covered the event.

On how the partnership began, Lilian Selda, Palawan Pawnshop's vice president for finance, said, "One of my friends who's also from UP but a classmate in AIM (Asian Institute for Management) called me. Yung husband nya is assistant team manager of the UP Maroons. They dropped by our house and then after that, the Nowhere To Go But UP [Foundation] went to our office and presented the package."

Agaton Uvero, the Fighting Maroons' team manager, confirmed that his foundation indeed reached out first.

"Mas madaling lumapit sa mga UP alumni kasi para bang nabuhay yung damdamin ng mga alumni. Dati, tahimik lang yung mga alumni ng UP. Ngayon, maraming gustong tumulong di lang sa basketball pati sa ibang mga programa ng UP," said Uvero.

Selda later bared that the partnership is not just for the men's hoops squad.

"The women's basketball team approached us also, so we're also sponsoring the women's basketball team," she added.
