Soon after signing up as an Adopt-a-Bin sponsor, and further underscoring their commitment to conservation efforts, Bridge Capital LLC recently donated $1,000 to the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance. The donation by the international investment banking and asset management firm was made as part of MINA’s annual fundraising event, the Green Gala, which will be held on Friday, Sept. 19, 2014.
“We really appreciate Bridge Capital LLC’s contribution to this year’s Green Gala,” said Brooke Nevitt, MINA interim executive director. “Coming so quickly on the heels of their Adopt-a-Bin sponsorship, Bridge Capital clearly supports environmental conservation efforts in CNMI.”
The leading conservation nonprofit organization in the Commonwealth, MINA has successfully implemented many projects, including the Obyan Rehabilitation Project, the Teacher Environmental Camp, the Marine Debris Prevention program, and the Tasi Watch Project. The organization is supported by project grants and from generous contributions from local businesses and community members.
In order to continue its efforts to preserve and protect the CNMI’s fragile environment and biodiversity, MINA is seeking the community’s participation in the Green Gala event. In addition to lively entertainment, dinner and a variety of beverages, the Green Gala will feature brief highlights from MINA’s projects, a silent auction, and many other activities that promise a memorable evening.
Last year’s Green Gala was sold out, so 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.
There are four categories of sponsorship (Emerald, Title, Major, and Sponsor categories) that correspond to the value of companies’ contribution. To become a sponsor of the event, contact Nevitt at 233-REEF (7333), or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (MINA)
