Rapidly approaching is what we’ve all been looking forward to— Fundación MIR’s Family Weekend for Life 2017! By now, we’re sure you’ve heard all the buzz relating to the upcoming affair and even received flyers to your doorstep, but if not, here’s an extra reminder for you to mark your calendars and come out to support our local La Romana charity.

What promises to be a ton of fun begins with a welcome party at Genesis Nightclub in Altos de Chavón… Remember when we partied there a couple of months back for the Hogar del Niño? Let’s continue the philanthropic spirit for Fundación MIR and dance into the night! Just remember to wake early for Saturday’s children’s tennis clinic at the La Romana Country Club and stick around for the afternoon golf tournament. Last year, it was Benito Martinez, Hector Herrera, Roberto Cerrano and Agustin Morillo who took home the golf champions’ title; who will it be this year? You still have a week to fine tune your game!

An awards dinner Saturday evening at Minitas will no doubt be a highlight among your August weekends, as the previous year featured a gorgeous setting on the beach with cocktails by Chivas and Ron Atlantico, a delicious dinner buffet by Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, and sensational entertainment by Dekadas and DJ Gringo, not to mention the sentimental solo by Fundación MIR student, Felix de la Cruz. Truly, it’s a weekend in Casa not to miss, and your participation helps the foundation continue their efforts in providing a better future for the children of La Romana. Just see their success in graduating an outstanding number of talented students this year!

See you this weekend!!!

The 2016 Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life event was a very memorable one – and most importantly, the result was a great time for all involved and an even better future for all the children educated at the Fundación MIR schools in La Romana! The dinner-dance at Minitas Beach was the finale of the annual Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life, celebrated this past Saturday the 13th of August 2016. The glamorous guests were welcomed to Minitas Beach along a romantic candle-lit pathway which ended at the Coco Mar Bar…click to read more here!
