This Weekend is the Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life, a fun, family-oriented event with golf and tennis tournaments for all the family, which will culminate in the ‘Dancing for Life’ event, a glamourous dinner-dance with a prize-giving ceremony being held at the Beach Club by Le Cirque at Playa Minitas in Casa de Campo Dominican Republic. 

The ‘Dancing for Life’ event will be the finale to the Family Weekend for Life – an opportunity for family and friends of the Casa de Campo resort to gather together enjoy a few drinks, a pleasant dinner, and a little dancing, whilst at the same time giving to a wonderful cause – the Fundación MIR, a charity based in La Romana.  As part of the evening there will be an awards ceremony for the competitors of the tennis and golf tournaments, when the winners will receive trophies and prizes. The Master of Ceremonies for this year’s event will be Pamela Sued, the Co-host of the popular TV show ‘Con Freddy y Punto.’

The Casino Diamante HAMACA from the La Romana – Bayahibe area, will once again be taking part in the celebration, offering  a variety of casino games.

Also taking part in the ‘Dancing for Life’ event is Tiffany & Co. with the famous ‘Tiffany Wall’ and the mysterious Tiffany’s blue boxes. The Tiffany Wall is always a popular attraction at MIR events with guests being given the chance to purchase a box (USD$300) – the contents of which are revealed after purchase, so it’s a little like a raffle only much more glamourous and you ‘win’ a beautiful piece of Tiffany jewelry.
