MIR_Bazaar_5What’s not to love about this event? Shopping- awesome. Food- essential! Fashion- a female obsession. And education for those who need it- life changing, because after all that’s what the Fundación MIR Bazaar is all about. MIR_Bazaar_3From Thursday March 26th to Sunday March 29th, the Fundación MIR Bazaar was open in the La Romana Country Club in Casa de Campo as part of the 30th annual Sugar Golf Tournament, and the activity raised much needed funds for the Fundación MIR charity which runs 3 schools with more than 1200 students in La Romana. With the participation of a fantastic variety of vendors, selling lots of very tempting items from jewellery to homeware, as well as the sponsorship of SILGON creators of CasaLife and Casa de Campo Living, who helped with the marketing of the event, the MIR Bazaar was a huge success attended by Casa de Campo villa owners, residents and visitors… who shopped, shopped, shopped! As always the most popular shopping day was the Saturday (March 28th), which was when Lian Fanjul de Azqueta, president and founder of the Fundación MIR and Raysa Fanjul, vice president of the Fundación MIR joined forces to host the annual Ladies Luncheon. With tables set up all around the outside terrace of the La Romana Country Club, the lovely ladies of Casa de Campo enjoyed a delicious lunch, while also the opportunity to shop just a little more! MIR_Bazaar_6 MIR_Bazaar_2 Casa de Campo villa owners, friends and family enjoyed shopping for gifts, accessories, jewellery and clothes from Cabana by Ana Grande; Jenny Polanco; Rubiluna; Veronica & Alessandra, purses and accessories; Boutique de Bordados embroidery service by Viktorija Seijas and Jorien Van Der Meij; Azurro; and many more! The highlight of the Ladies Luncheon was the fashion show beautifully presented by many adorable models of the Casa de Campo community; little boys and girls who modelled the children’s clothing created by by Sissy Bermudez. We had such a great time we’re already looking forward to next year!
