United Airlines donates round-trip ticket to US to MINA’s Green Gala

(MINA) — As part of its commitment to conservation efforts throughout Micronesia, United Airlines announced that it is sponsoring the upcoming Green Gala by donating a roundtrip ticket to any destination in the U.S. that will be raffled off at the event.

The Green Gala, which will be held on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017, is a signature fundraising event of the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance.

“United Airlines’ donation raises the excitement of the Green Gala and the raffle featuring the roundtrip ticket to the mainland,” said Fran Castro, chair of MINA’s board of directors. “We are very thankful for the company’s generosity!”

“For over 12 years, MINA has been on the forefront of environmental stewardship in the Marianas,” said Paula Monk, United Airlines senior sales manager for Guam and Micronesia. “United Airlines is proud to be an emerald sponsor of the Green Gala, and we look forward to partnering with MINA in other activities that promote conservation.”

MINA continues its efforts to conserve and protect the CNMI’s fragile environment and biodiversity, and is proud to partner up with the local community in the successful implementation of our many projects,” said Castro. “We’re especially thankful this year for the generous support of everyone who has purchased tickets to our Green Gala this year which, as of today, is completely sold out.
