The Opening Salvo Parade and Assembly was organized by the UNITEAM BBM-SARA East Coast, USA. Die-hard movers/supporters  sporting UniTeam colors (red & green) traveled from New Jersey, Connecticut, Virginia and other states in the East Coast to join the folks in metropolitan New York. They braved the snow and the wind chills just to show their utmost support to their candidates. 


About 30 cars had joined the caravan along Woodside Ave, Roosevelt Ave and Broadway and went back to Frank D. O’Connor Playground for a short program, raffle draw while enjoying Filipino delicacies and snacks. The camaraderie and bizarre fellowship drew excitement  around the vicinity thus attracting passersby. Consequently, the  highlight of the event was the community singing of` “Bagong Lipunan'' which overwhelmed the crowd along with the  deafening chanting  of “Bongbong- Sara!

He reiterates that In Uniteam , the supporters must uplift the candidate’s advocacy , respond to the needs of the community, live with integrity then trust the Uniteam Candidates to bring hope for the Philippines aiming for a brighter future.

Lastly, the presence of the patriotic supporters served to propel the community to join the upcoming Big Event at Liberty Park, New Jersey on April 10, 2022.
