40 members of the Casa de Campo & La Romana community have come together to wait tables at an upcoming fundraising event; “Fiesta de los Mozos Famosos”.
These local “celebrities”, myself (Rebecca Hughes) included, will act as the waiters and waitresses throughout the entire event – no doubt much to the amusement of our guests! The celebration will raise funds for the Fundación Río Salao, whose aim is to beautify the Río Salao area in La Romana by painting the facades of the houses in vibrant Caribbean colors and later to create a “tourist alley” with small businesses selling souvenirs and crafts.
The “Fiesta de los Mozos Famosos” will take place on Saturday November 8th from 7pm at the Club de la Costa in Central Romana, La Romana. In addition to being waited on by Casa de Campo and La Romana’s most famous faces, guests will also enjoy dinner and drinks, followed by lots of dancing to the music of 2 great Dominican orchestras! And all that for just RD$2,500!
“We invite you to enjoy twice; first for the simple pleasure of spending time with friends and family, and secondly for the feeling that your are contributing in a postive way to the social, cultual and economic development of Río Salao,” explained the Fundación Río Salao.
The concept of the “Fiesta de los Mozos Famosos” was created by Freddy Ginebra, founder and president of the Casa de Teatro in Santo Domingo. A well known lover of the arts, and philanthropist, Freddy Ginebra is helping the Fundación Río Salao prepare this year’s grand celebration and will also act as the head waiter. Also taking part as a waiter (a Mozo) is José Antonio Rodríguez, Dominican Minister of Culture and Ricardo Bello, founder of the Fundación Río Salao.
Among the local “celebrities” taking part as waiters and waitresses we have; Ricardo Bello, Jose Ignacio Morales, José Reyes, Fausto Reu, Frank Micheli, Freddy Ginebra, Campos de Moya, Xiomarita Menéndez, Kiko Micheli, Cuquín Victoria, Juan José Santana Medrano, Carlitos Pichardo, Gricelle Lahoz, Fernando Echavarría, Fernando Flaquer, Karina Noble, Rebecca Hughes (that’s me!), Philip Silvestri, José López, Patricia Proaño, Roberto Martínez, Bienvenido Santana Güilamo, Checheo Rivera, Jorge Sturla, Saadia Rivera, José Antonio Rodríguez, Jenny Polanco, Erika Vilain, Eladio Uribe, Resemery Santos, Héctor Dario Núñez, Eduardo Jana, Flavia Anneli, Emanuela Giovannetti and Mariano González!
