On Saturday June 16th 2012, 93 generous golf players took part in the 3rd annual Buen Samaritano Golf Tournament, held on the Links golf course in Casa de Campo, which was later celebrated with a fun and exciting prize-giving ceremony and dinner at the Club Caza y Pesca located in Buena Vista, La Romana!

Despite the clouds that threatened to spoil last Saturday’s wonderful afternoon-evening celebration, the participants of the Buen Samaritano Golf Tournament, who had just played a fun and challenging golf tournament in teams of two on the “Links” golf course in Casa de Campo, gathered at the “Caza y Pesca Club” in La Romana with much enthusiasm, where they enjoyed drinks, food, live music, raffles – with some cheeky players joking about being the winners (as seen in the photo on the right), while they awaited for the official prize-giving ceremony!


The event was conducted by popular members of the La Romana community, Hilda Peguero and Marcial (Callito) Morla, who gave the welcome address. The evening progressed with numerous raffles, when players won many prizes donated by the event’s numerous sponsors such as; golf clubs, golf gloves, bank accounts, vacations, among others and then there was a lot of dancing – thanks to the wonderful rythms of live merengue music played by popular christian band, “Maranata”.

The guests also enjoyed a buffet-style dinner with a variety of traditional Dominican food, as well as a video of the many people who have been helped by the Buen Samaritano Foundation – who gave their heartfelt thanks to those who support the cause.

Enjoying the party – to the rythms of Dominican Maranata band!
