Arriving to the La Romana Country Club Saturday evening, April 14th, guests walked through the Bazaar filled with booths selling jewelry, home goods, clothing, accessories, and much more before heading downstairs to the perfectly lit up pool area to celebrate another successful Sugar Tournament weekend!
String lights hung above the pool and over tables, stretching out and illuminating the space creating a starry feel for the awards ceremony and dinner. The La Romana Country Club catered the event serving salads, sushi, pork, tenderloin, cordon bleu, potatoes, an assortment of veggies, and of course a grand dessert table. The open bar kept drinks flowing as guests mingled and shared stories from the green awaiting the start of the festivities.
