“Fundación MIR, a non-profit organization which works to raise funds for educational programs for children in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade, will be celebrating 25 years in 2015! This is a milestone for the entire community to rejoice and share.” Raysa Fanjul told Casa de Campo Living.

Year in, year out, one of Casa de Campo’s most glamorous and fun events, Casa de Campo Living got together event hostess Raysa Fanjul to find out what motivates her on this unenviable quest to throw an unforgettable party.

@cdcliving: What are the keys to creating a successful event?

Raysa Fanjul: Our events are successful because we have a great team which cares, plans and supports you all the way. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has helped put such a magnificent event together, year after year. The donations we collect at this fundraiser truly have an immense impact on the lives of the MIR students, their families, the community and the country’s future.

@cdcliving: Why do you support Fundación MIR?

Raysa Fanjul: The fact that so many, many children benefit from this organization (currently 1,204 students enrolled to be exact) is my motivation. It is beautiful watching the children gain so much in preparing for their futures.

@cdcliving: What message do you have for the Casa de Campo community to encourage them to attend and support the Magical Splendor Gala?

Raysa Fanjul: The Magical Splendor Gala is a very worthy cause, of which I am very proud to support. Please come and join us for a Magical and Splendid evening on January 17th at Casa Grande. I can promise an enjoyable evening while doing something important for the local community. Every gift received goes towards helping La Romana’s children to a better life.
