Last weekend was the Fundacion MIR Family Weekend For Life Event with tennis and golf tournaments taking place during the day of Saturday the 15th of August, followed by a spectacular dinner, dance, awards ceremony and after party with DJ Gringo at the Beach Club by Le Cirque.

The day started at 9AM at the La Terraza tennis club, where competitors of the tennis tournament battled it out to become the champion of their category.

In the evening, the ‘Dancing for Life’ event began  with a cocktail at the Beach Club by Le Cirque at Casa de Campo’s beautiful Playa Minitas. The dinner took place in the area behind the Beach Club by Le Cirque, which had been set up with hundreds of tables, where guests could enjoy a delicious dinner and inspiring speeches given by Lian Fanjul de Azqueta,  founder of the Fundacion MIR and  her daughter Lyanne Azqueta who currently runs the Fundacion MIR.

Following such a wonderful dinner, the dance floor quickly filled with couples, families and friends happy to dance the night away and as the evening progressed the party moved to the Beach Club by Le Cirque where DJ Gringo kept the party pumping until well into the night!

This event was, from start to finish fantastic and very much enjoyed by everyone who participated, there is no doubt that a great sum of money was raised to benefit the Fundacion MIR, a non-profit organization which works to provide eduction and health services to the children and people of La Romana most in need.
