Tickets are now on sale for Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance’s largest fundraiser of the year, the Green Gala, slated for Sept. 14, 2018, at the Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan’s Hibiscus Hall, starting at 6pm. The price of admission is $75 per person.
Proceeds of the event support MINA’s ongoing work that strives to conserve the diverse natural resources of the CNMI. This year is even more special, as MINA celebrates the International Year of the Reef and the community members who work to sustain the natural environment and ensure the island way of life.
The leading nonprofit conservation organization in the Commonwealth, MINA successfully implements and executes various environmental awareness outreach projects, and also continues the Plastic Bag Challenge, Schools for Environmental Conservation workshops, Tasi Watch Program, and the recycling Adopt-A-Bin Program. Strong support from the community makes the continuation of all these projects possible.
The highlight of the Green Gala will be the Green Awards presentation, recognizing an individual, business, and school group for exemplary leadership in conservation. In addition, there will be numerous door prizes, a grand raffle prize courtesy of United Airlines of a roundtrip airline ticket to the U.S. via Honolulu, a variety of handicrafts and special packages on the silent auction table, a no-host bar and bottle service, and special entertainment celebrating IYOR.
In anticipation of another sold-out event, organizers are encouraging those who plan to attend to purchase their tickets early, either at the MINA office in Gualo Rai or from any of the volunteer board members.
