Tan Holdings, IT&E, and Ambyth Shipping Micronesia Inc. were added yesterday to the growing roster of sponsors for the 2015 Marianas March Against Cancer. Tan Holdings and IT&E are title sponsors, while Ambyth is a major sponsor.
Tan Holdings donated more than $5,700 that was raised from last Saturday’s JP and Cancer Alertness Walk.
Eli Arago, executive vice president for Tan Holdings, said the company has been donating to the MMAC for the past eight years.
IT&E gave $5,000 in in-kind donations. IT&E is one of the oldest continuous sponsors of the MMAC and the 2015 MMAC committee expressed their genuine and heartfelt gratitude for IT&E’s untiring support in the fight against cancer.
This is Ambyth’s second year as a sponsor of the MMAC.
Josh P. Dandan, group quality assurance manager and human resource manager, said their sponsorship is intended to show their support in the fight against cancer.
“Cancer is a dreadful disease and Ambyth wants to show its support through its annual contribution. Unfortunately cancer continues to touch so many lives, including several members of the Ambyth family. We look forward to participating as a team in the coming years,” Dandan said.
Businesses, individuals, and organizations that also wish to support the 2015 MMAC may donate funds, services, or raffle items. Sponsorship levels include title sponsor (donating $3,000 or more), major sponsor (donating $1,000 to $2,999), or supporting sponsorship (donating $1 to $999).
Title sponsors this year are Delta Air Lines, Bank of Guam, Tan Holdings, Hyatt Regency Saipan, Joeten Daidai Foundation, Sorensen Media Group Saipan, Marianas Variety, and IT&E. Major sponsors are Xerox, Brabu Pharmacy, Traders Insurance, Jeff Hofschneider and Friends, Saipan Mayor’s Office, Bridge Capital LLC, and Ambyth Shipping Micronesia Inc.
The 2015 MMAC will be held at the Hopwood Junior High School field from May 1 to 2.
Money raised from MMAC is used by CCA to promote cancer awareness and prevention, provide patient support services, and serve as the liaison and advocate for cancer issues in the CNMI.
