IT&E, the CNMI’s telecommunications leader, continues to support the Mariana Islands Nature Alliance with a contribution to the next month’s Green Gala.
Branded as the “social event of the year,” the Green Gala is MINA’s largest fundraising event that allows the nonprofit organization to continue its conservation efforts of the diverse natural resources of the Northern Mariana Islands.
“This is our biggest event of the year and we count on support from our community partners like IT&E to allow us to continue increasing awareness for the protection and preservation of the CNMI’s precious natural resources,” said MINA executive director Sam Sablan.
According to Sablan, the 2012 edition of the Green Gala successfully raised critical funds that fueled projects and activities such as the Tasi Watch Program, the No Need Bag campaign, beach cleanups, and the green recycle bins located at most CNMI beaches.
In addition to supporting the Gala, IT&E recently renewed its partnership with MINA through its islandwide recycling campaign. Since the program’s inception, IT&E has sponsored the removal of recycled materials from one of Saipan’s most popular venues, the Oleai Sports Complex.
“We appreciate our environment and we’re proud to support organizations like MINA who are dedicated to the keeping our islands beautiful,” said IT&E marketing manager Hans Mickelson.
