Showing their support for conserving the islands’ natural resources, several hotels on Saipan recently made donations ranging between $1,000 and $3,000 to the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance.
These donations were made as part of MINA’s annual fundraising event, the Green Gala, which will be held on Friday, May 27, 2016. Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan, Coral Ocean Point Resort Club, Hyatt Regency Saipan, Kanoa Resort, and Pacific Islands Club are among this year’s major sponsors of MINA’s Green Gala.
The leading conservation nonprofit organization in the Commonwealth, MINA has worked to implement various conservation projects, including the Plastic Bag Challenge, the Schools for Environmental Conservation workshops, the Marine Debris Prevention program, Tasi Watch Program, the Adopt-A-Bin Project, and Managaha Pride Campaign.
In order to continue its efforts to preserve and protect the CNMI’s environment and biodiversity, MINA is seeking the community’s participation in the Green Gala event. The organization is supported by project grants and from generous contributions from local businesses and community members.
In addition to lively entertainment, dinner and a variety of beverages, the Green Gala will feature highlights from MINA’s projects, a silent auction, and many other activities that promise a memorable evening to celebrate over 10 years of working with island communities for conservation.
As the last Green Gala was sold out, organizers are encouraging those who plan to attend to buy their tickets early.
Tickets for the Green Gala event can be purchased at the MINA Office in Gualo Rai or from any of the volunteer Board members.
