Joeten Charitable Foundation recently signed on as a grand sponsor of the upcoming Green Gala sponsored by the Marianas Islands Nature Alliance.
The Green Gala, which will be held this Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013, at the Fiesta Resort & Spa’s Hibiscus Hall, aims to raise critical funds to help MINA, a nonprofit organization, continue its work in protecting the environment.
“We’re really grateful to the Joeten Charitable Foundation for its generosity and support in helping to make the Green Gala event a great success,” said Frankie Eliptico, MINA board chairperson. “We’re still encouraging many other companies to also be a part of this special event by becoming a sponsor, donating items for the silent auction, or by purchasing tickets.”
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, Tasi Watch Project, and the Adopt-A-Bin Project, which has placed recycle bins at all the major beaches on the island.
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. The organization is supported by project grants and from generous contributions from local businesses and community members.
In addition to great 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 promises a memorable evening.
“It’s going to be a great night for the environment,” said Fran Castro, MINA board member, who is also leading the planning for the Gala activities.
