Showing its support once again for conserving the islands’ natural resources, The Shack recently donated in-kind prizes totaling more than $1,000 to the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance. The donation was made as part of MINA’s annual fundraising event, the Green Gala, which will be held on Sept. 19, 2014.
The leading conservation nonprofit organization in the Commonwealth, MINA has successfully implemented various 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 lively entertainment, dinner, and a variety of beverages, the Green Gala will feature brief highlights from MINA’s projects, a silent auction, and many other activities that promises a memorable evening.
Last year’s Green Gala was sold out, so organizers are encouraging those who plan to attend to buy their tickets early.
Tickets for the Green Gala event can be purchased at the MINA Office in Gualo Rai or from any of the volunteer board members.
There are four categories of sponsorship (Emerald, Title, Major, and Sponsor categories) that correspond to the value of companies’ contribution. To become a sponsor of the event, contact Brooke Nevitt or Becky Furey at 233-REEF (7333), or email email@example.com. (MINA)
