Every year the Casa de Campo Sugar Tournaments raise funds for the Fundación MIR charity, who run three schools in La Romana with more than 1,800 students. The annual event consists of the Casa de Campo Sugar Golf Tournament, the MIR Bazaar and Ladies Luncheon hosted by Lian Fanjul de Azqueta and Raysa Fanjul, and the Tennis Tournament. As per tradition, a welcome event for the Casa de Campo Sugar Golf players was hosted by Benetti Yachts with IBI Nautica. This elegant cocktail celebration took place on Dock 13 surrounded by three impressive Benetti megayachts.
Not only did distinguished golfers and guests enjoy three days of golfing, but at the same time a number of talented female tennis aficionados played in the “Sugar Tennis Tournament” on Saturday morning.
