Tan Siu Lin Foundation, the charitable arm of TanHoldings, handed over a donation worth $5,000 to the Marianas Visitors Authority (MVA) to support the 18th Annual Tinian Hot Pepper Festival that will be held on March 11-13, 2022.
“Pika Fest” is one of the significant events of MVA that aims to exhibit Tinian’s culture, music, dance, food, particularly the spicy ones called the island’s pika “Donne Sali” or hot pepper.
Affirming TSL’s support and commitment to “Pika Fest,” TSL Foundation executive director Merlie Tolentino turned over the donation last Monday to the MVA Community Project Specialist Ray Villagomez.
“The Tan Siu Lin Foundation joins the Marianas Visitors Authority and the people of Tinian in celebrating the Pika Fest, which is one of the most popular events in the NMI. We hope to see Tinian residents sharing a weekend of fun and learning experience with Saipan and other off-island visitors,” Tolentino said.
