The champagne cocktail celebrated at the Cartier Boutique in Blue Mall, Santo Domingo was well attended by the philanthropic ladies of the Damas Diplomáticas association, including Rocio de Castillero, president of the association and wife of the Ambassador for Peru in the Dominican Republic, as well as a number of other VIP guests, who all joined together in support of this cause.

At the center of the celebration was a beautiful Cartier watch, a “Tank solo” – donated by Cartier to be raffled to raise money for the association. Tickets for the raffle, which will take place on November 20th are on sale for RD$1,000 and are available from Cartier Santo Domingo.
