The Fundación MIR Magical Splendor for Life weekend took place on Friday and Saturday the 27th and 28th of January in Casa de Campo, with the main event, the Magical Splendor for Life Gala and Fashion Show celebrated on Minitas Beach on the Friday – and continued on the Saturday with the golf tournament and the VIP dinner at Casa Grande.

The Golf Tournament was played at the La Romana Country Club

The golf tournament, with the participation of more than 50 Casa de Campo golfers, teed off around the La Romana Country Club golf course at 1pm on the Saturday afternoon and with cloudy skies keeping the temperature cool and breezy it was the perfect day for a friendly (ish) round of golf. Played in a “scramble” format, the golfers worked together in teams of 4 to get the lowest score.

Ron Atlantico provided some welcome refreshments!
