This was definitely a great weekend! We sure hope you didn’t miss any of the Hogar del Niño’s lively events. The La Romana charity is a children’s daycare and educational center for over 1,500 students located just outside of Casa de Campo. Children as young as just a few weeks old up to 18 years are cared for and educated daily. The non profit organization are funded through international and national private donations, and aid their programs through fundraisers like the annual Hogar del Niño Weekend.
This year’s 20th edition did not disappoint! With a slightly different format than previous years, this year featured a concert at the Yacht Club in the Marina Casa de Campo on Friday night where many ladies and gentlemen filled the social spaces, dancing to music by Enclave.
The very next morning we rose for an early start with the various sports events at the La Romana Country Club.
A sunny day out on the green…
Swimming, biking and running sections where the little ones especially had a blast!
With a good turn-out and several back-and-forth rallies.
To end the day, a delicious dinner and an awards ceremony ensued with a very colorful carnival theme! Stay tuned for all of our coverage articles. Congratulations and a big thank you to the Hogar del Niño for an amazing weekend and the wonderful work of love you do!!!
