Thanksgiving isn’t complete without some turkey! This is the fifth year that Cigar Country has hosted this wonderful event in which the Casa de Campo community members get a head start on the holidays with a Best Turkey Competition. Everyone thinks they make the best turkey, so naturally, our fun-loving community puts them to the test! 

On Thursday, November 17th, the community got together to witness the fun competition which brought together a group of 11 residents who put on their chef’s hats and aprons and competed to see just who can roast the best turkey.

Set in the wonderfully decorated Lago Grill, friends enjoyed a delicious dinner and were eager to hear the results of the competition, judged by a panel of fine critics which included: Gabriella Reginato, Oscar Batista, General Manager of Tipico Bonao and Argenis Lebrón.

They were quick to note which turkeys provided the most flavor, the savoriest sauce, and came with the biggest WOW factor. Casa de Campo’s catering services provided some stellar and appetizing side dishes. In the end, Patricia Proaño was deemed the #1 champion with Angelly Valera, Liliana Abel and Amelia Pereyra coming in 2nd, 3rd and 4th Place respectively. 

The winners were gifted with cool turkey awards and 100% of the event’s proceeds benefitted the Hogar del Niño. Congratulations to the organizers for continuing with this cool new tradition, the participants for whipping up a delicious feast, and the attendees for supporting their fellow neighbors and the children of La Romana. We’re lucky to be part of such a great community!
