This year’s Hogar del Niño Weekend was a huge success! If you didn’t get a chance to attend an event, check out all our coverage articles here! One of the many new activities this year was the celebration of Frank Sinatra’s birthday, and you can imagine, it was incredible!!
The event took place in SBG, La Marina Casa de Campo. Lots of people went in support of Hogar del Niño and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the great Frank Sinatra. Guests received a welcome cocktail they enjoyed by the water with friends whilst the musicians set up.
Victor Mitrov, gave a splendid performance with his incredibly melodious voice accompanied by the trumpet. He made us fall in love all over again with Sinatra’s songs! Singing along to “Come fly with me” and “Cheek to Cheek.” Heaven… we were in heaven!
Thank you Hogar del Niño for including this new event into your program, and your wonderful work with the kids and teens of La Romana!
