Save the date! The 23rd annual Magical Splendor for Life by the Fundación MIR is slated for Saturday the 18th of January 2014.
This year, the Magical Splendor for Life by the Fundación MIR, one of Casa de Campo’s most elegant social and fundraising occasions welcomes famous fashion designer Ángel Sánchez, a judge for Project Runway Mexico, and designer to the stars, as the designer presenting the fashion show.
To be hosted for the second year by Alfy and Raysa Fanjul at their Casa de Campo estate, Casa Grande, the 23rd annual Magical Splendor for Life celebration looks set to be a fabulously philanthropic occasion – so save the date and buy your tickets now!
The celebration, which also includes a golf tournament to be played at the La Romana Country Club will raise funds for the continued growth of the Fundación MIR’s many projects- including their 3 schools in La Romana.
Once again participating as lead sponsor is Tiffany & Co., with the Tiffany’s Mystery Box fundraiser – an activity that at the Fundación MIR Family Weekend celebration this August on Minitas Beach, raised an additional US$20,000 for the cause.
Fashion Show by Ángel Sánchez
The Ángel Sánchez fashion show will showcase his spring-summer 2014 collection.
Ángel Sánchez of Venezuela, pays special attention to cut, fit and proportion which is why his creations fit the women who wear them better than a glove. His exquisite taste is what led his fashion house to rise so quickly in Latin America and eventually led him to expand internationally, when he opened the company’s headquarters in New York City in 1997. His celebrity clientele includes everyone from Taylor Swift, to Eva Longoria to Sandra Bullock who had her wedding gown designed by Sanchez.
