A dinner fundraiser “Dine for Disabilities” on Jan. 26 at Pop’z Restaurant, Tinian strictly for 21 years and above will include a raffle drawing and silent auction.  If you are willing to donate for the auction, purchase dinner tickets or interested in volunteering, please contact teamkokacnmi@gmail.com; Monika or Mikaela Diaz.
