MMAC teams beef up fundraising efforts


Sponsors and teams supporting the Marianas March Against Cancer is beefing up their efforts to raise funds for the cause.

Team Tan Holdings-Kagman High School is doing a fundraiser by currently selling T-shirts and polo shirts with a uniquely designed “Just Beat It” logo in front.

These are sold for only $15 each and each purchase entitles the buyer to a raffle ticket with a chance to win a roundtrip ticket to Manila, Philippines via Philippine Airlines.

Raffle tickets can also be bought separately for only $5 each. 

“We are excited about Team Tan Holdings/Kagman High School›s fundraising activity which gives one lucky winner a chance to win a roundtrip ticket to Manila on Philippine Airlines.  This is a great opportunity for our community to support the fight against cancer and win a fabulous prize at the same time,” MMAC overall committee chair Geri C. Dela Cruz said

Triple J, on the other hand, has announced that they will be donating a portion of their revenue received at some of their business affiliates on Saipan to the 2016 MMAC. 

“We are thrilled with these fundraising activities initiated by Team Triple J. They are a new team this year so we extend our gratitude to the Triple J group of companies for their support in the battle against cancer,” Dela Cruz said.

Hertz and Triple J Motors have committed to donating a portion of their proceeds from vehicle and car rental sales to the MMAC. 

Likewise, for every iced tea ordered at Tony Roma›s and Capricciosa in Garapan and Truong’s Restaurant in Susupe, $1 will be donated to MMAC.
