Marianas Legal Strategy Group, LLC has recommitted its Emerald-level sponsorship again this year for the Micronesian Islands Nature Alliance’s Green Gala on Sept.14 at the Hibiscus Hall of the Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan.
They join numerous other corporate supporters of MINA, with the philosophy that as residents and business owners on Saipan, all share in the common responsibility of conserving and protecting our natural resources.
MLSG partners Marcia Schultz and Sean Frink commended MINA for the work they do to engage and educate the public about recycling and keeping the ocean free from debris. “The work that MINA undertakes has a driving influence that potentially will change the negative attitude of ‘Not my problem’ to one that embraces ‘My world, my problem,’” said Shultz.
This year’s Green Gala theme is the “International Year of the Reef” and honors will be bestowed upon the winners of the Environmental Hero Award, Green Business of the Year Award, and Environmental Champion Award.
Along with the celebration of the environment, the Green Gala raises funds to keep MINA’s programs progressing, such as building capacity for the marine debris prevention program, Schools for Environmental Conservation, and the Tasi Watch Program.
Doors open at 6pm, and overflow parking is available to guests at the American Memorial Park. Tickets are $75 and on sale now at MINA’s office at the Gualo Rai Center, Middle Road. Call 233-7333 for more information. (MINA)
