This year the annual Cartier Benefit Cocktail and Dinner will take place on Monday December the 29th at Casa Grande in Casa de Campo, held in aid of the Fundación MIR and the Hogar del Niño. In addition, the Cartier Boutique will be open from the 27th to the 30th of December between 10am and 5pm at the Casa de Campo Yacht Club.
The annual event, which has over the last 23 years raised more than US$2 million for the Fundación MIR and Hogar del Niño charities, once again promises Casa de Campo villa owners and guests a glamorous and entertaining evening at the Fanjul’s Casa de Campo estate, Casa Grande.
The Cartier Benefit, the only yearly event which raises money to benefit both the Fundación MIR and the Hogar del Niño charities, has over the years raised more than US$1million dollars for each cause – who both provide educational services to the children of the La Romana area, who both strive to provide care and an excellent education for children of the greater La Romana area.
As part of the event, 3 luxury travel experiences will be auctioned; “Glamorous Beverly Hills” a long weekend at the Pink Palace Beverly Hills Hotel; “Oh La La, Paris!”, a long weekend at the Plaza Athénée in the city of love; and “Brazil and Peru”, a 9-day South American Journey including Iguassu Falls and Macchu Pichu.
