Atkins Kroll donated $55,000 to the 2022 Pacific Mini Games yesterday as part of their gold sponsorship. The amount is symbolic of the auto dealership’s 55th year anniversary on Saipan. The games will be held on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota from June 17 to 25. This year, 20 countries and territories will participate in nine sports.
“AK Saipan joining as gold sponsors for the upcoming Pacific Mini Games means a lot to me both professionally and personally. My dad, Dr. Kurt Barnes, was instrumental in developing and hosting the first Micronesian Olympics in 1969, and spent his whole life teaching team sports in the region. In many ways, this really is an extension of his legacy, and I couldn’t be more proud for AK to be a part of it,” said Kevin Barnes, sales manager at Atkins Kroll Saipan.
“It is truly a privilege to be a part of the Northern Marianas Pacific Mini Games legacy. We at AK are filled with immense pride to support such an event that brings together our brothers and sisters of Oceania in the spirit of sportsmanship,” said Joel Lesh, vice president and general manager of Atkins Kroll Saipan.
Atkins Kroll is a proud community supporter and wishes the best of luck to all participating athletes. (PR)
