Preceded earlier in the day by Golf and Tennis Tournaments at the private La Romana Country Club, the event was also an opportunity to bestow the necessary awards on who took on the challenge of competing in the Golf and Tennis tournaments, totaling just over 100 competitors (80 in the Golf and 25 in the Tennis)! The respective winners where as follows:
“We are so thankful for all of the people who collaborate with us to make this event possible and for the people who attend, Fundacion MIR would not exist without all of you – God Bless you” – Lian Fanjul de Azqueta.
This will mark the 2nd time since the August MIR event evolved into two event, moving of the Fashion show till early in the year. Originally having only one major Fundraising event per year, support for MIR has continued to grow, as have the responsibilities they are now in charge off. The support shown by the Casa de Campo community of residents, villa owners and aficionados has always been vital in past years, and are even more so today!

It is a beautiful cause. It was especially heartwarming to see the different generations of children helped by the foundation. The ceremony was inspiring and it was clear that a lot of effort has gone into this program.
I consider it a greater incentive to play in a tournament that serves a greater cause and is as well organized as the MIR tournament. The course conditions were pristine and lady luck was on my side. My guests and I had a wonderful time at the festivities and look forward to it next year.
