The Fundación MIR Family Weekend For Life, one of the most popular and glamorous fundraising events in Casa de Campo, is THIS weekend – August 12th and August 13th, and as per usual will include tennis and golf tournaments, a tennis clinic for kids, and an awards Dinner and Gala, with popular media personality Lorenna Pierre as Mistress of Ceremonies, as well as an After-Party with DJ Gringo at Minitas Beach!
The event which is celebrated in the Casa de Campo resort every year with the purpose of raising funds for the continued development of the Fundación MIR’s 3 schools in La Romana, attended by children who are most in need from the greater La Romana area, will allow Casa de Campo residents, visitors and villa owners to enjoy a wonderful weekend consisting of a Welcome Party at Genesis Nightclub with DJ Gringo from Miami on Friday, August 12th, and a Tennis clinic for children the following morning along with the Tennis Tournament in La Terraza Tennis Club. The Golf Tournament will take place in La Romana Country Club also on Saturday August 13th, and that evening there will be a dinner-dance party at Minitas. Live music is provided by la Orquesta Dekadas, and the awards ceremony will congratulate all of the winners throughout the family weekend, and a raffle of travel certificates is in order too! The dress code for the party is “Tropical Chic,” so don’t be afraid to don lots of colorful ensembles, and comfy shoes of course, to dance the night away with DJ Gringo.
This year, the awards dinner and dance party has the pleasure of popular media personality Lorenna Pierre as Mistress of Ceremonies. Her career began while studying marketing when she decided to try her luck in a casting on Mango TV. She was part of the program “Conectados” and also hosted “Aplausos,” a segment of Telenoticias (Local Channel 11). On the radio, she worked with “A la hora de la 12” (de 12 a 2, por Radio Listín) and also “Parate ya”. She currently co-hosts “Al amanecer” in Channel 7, Antena Latina. She is also an instructor at John Casablancas for teenagers, and has a web portal, “El Diario de Lorenna,” where she often writes and posts inspiring interviews with various famous personalities, that started as a collaboration with the magazine “Pandora”. Lorenna frequents Casa de Campo with her husband Jacinto Peynado, President of Peynado General Automotriz/ Porsche, Ferrari here in Dominican Republic.
