Last Saturday the 13th of August, the Casa de Campo community celebrated the Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life, during which Emilia Fanjul was presented with the “MIR Humanitarian” award.
The Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life event raised money for the Fundación MIR, a charity which provides educational services to the children of the greater La Romana area. As part of the event and fundraising efforts, supporters of the Fundación MIR took part in tennis and golf tournaments and at the end of the day enjoyed a fantastic dinner gala at the Minitas Beach in Casa de Campo.

During the dinner-gala, founder and President of the Fundación MIR, Lian Fanjul de Azqueta and her daughter, Lyanne Azqueta took to the stage to thank their guests and supporters. Lyanne took the opportunity to say a very special ‘Thank You’ to Emilia and Jose “Pepe” Fanjul for their continued support of the Fundación MIR for the last 20 years! Sadly, Emilia herself was unable to attend the Casa de Campo event, but her children Emilia and Pepe Jr. took to the stage to receive the award in their mother’s name.
The Fundación MIR is a non-profit organization which works to provide education to the children of the greater La Romana area, who are most in need. They run 3 schools; the MIR Esperanza (boys vocational school), the Escuela Tecnica Vocacional Fundación MIR (girls vocational school) and the Primaria MIR (elementary school).
