Last Monday April 4th, several ladies from Casa de Campo got together for one of the most enjoyable games ever… BINGO! And what was even better was that the activity raised funds for the children of Villa Caoba, La Romana.

Fundación Lirio del Valle organized a beautiful afternoon at Punta Minitas 42 in Casa de Campo, hosted by our dear friend, Maria Ventura. This organization helps provide schooling and feeding to the many impoverished children of Villa Caoba and contributes to their proper physical and intellectual development.

Throughout the event, many played BINGO over a delicious snack in the amazing villa. Seated in the living room, out on the terrace and around the dining table, the ladies kept a close watch on their cards and a careful ear to the numbers called out not to miss the opportunity to yell out “BINGO!”  There were bets going on and excellent strategies being played! Who knew you could have so much fun during a bingo game?!

Maria Ventura was the most incredible host, and a remarkable bingo player. You could really learn something from her! The villa where the game took place is actually one listed in her agency, Maria Ventura & Asociados Real Estate for sale. So if you liked what you saw, get in contact with her!

Everything reflected positivism and joy. In Casa de Campo, we never lose an opportunity to gather around in the name of a great cause and have an excellent time together!
