Rapidly approaching is what we’ve all been looking forward to— Fundación MIR’s Family Weekend for Life 2018! 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 an early morning children’s tennis clinic, where the younger members of the community will be able to polish their tennis skills at the La Romana Country Club. The adults will then head off on the golf course in the afternoon where they will be able to enjoy a day of friendly competition. Last year, it was Francesco Caltagirone, Valentina Caltagirone, Sergio Arnaboldi, and Luciana Catti with a total of 53.9 points 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 who had everybody on their feet in no time enjoying all the pleasantries of the evening, not to mention the wonderful performance of a Fundación MIR student who had won the singing contest, La Voz. 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 the many students that were baptised this year, the Tourism and Hospitality students final projects and how well the girls did on their robotics camp this summer!

See you this weekend!!!
