The Fundación MIR achieved a momentous milestone on Saturday, August 12th, as it hosted the highly anticipated annual event, Family Day 2023. Taking place at Casa de Campo Resorts & Villas, the event witnessed a remarkable convergence of families and philanthropic endeavors, uniting individuals from diverse backgrounds in a purposeful and joyous celebration.

While offering an ideal retreat for families over the weekend, Family Day 2023 achieved its primary objective again, successfully marshaling resources to foster the well-being of more than 2,400 families residing within the La Romana community.

The day commenced amidst the sprawling green landscapes, with participants eagerly engaging in spirited activities including a golf tournament, paddle tennis matches, and a tennis clinic tailored for children.

As the day transitioned into the evening, attendees gathered for dinner and an awards ceremony with Laura De La Nuez as mistress of ceremonies and Mr. Alvaro Silva handing out the awards to the winners. The musical ambiance was skillfully curated by Sergio Pierret, complemented by the dazzling audiovisual production helmed by Nelson García Fortuna.

True to tradition, a beautiful performance by the young girls and boys of Fundación MIR graced the occasion, directed by alumnus and music maestro Felix Cruz Santana. This heartfelt tradition added a memorable touch to the evening’s proceedings.

The evening’s program also featured remarks from Señora Lian Fanjul de Azqueta, the president and founder of Fundación MIR.
