With these beautiful summer days that barely have a cloud in the sky you might be searching for more opportunities to play your favorite sport. Golf is indeed a popular pastime that offers an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors and bring communities together as we’ve seen so often — most recently in the 6th annual La Romana Golf Tournament. It is with this golfing spirit that the first Golf, Cigar and Music Tournament will take place on July 1st and bring support to our local charity, Orfanato Niños de Cristo in La Romana

Golf, Cigar, and Music Tournament

The tournament organized by Iván Fernández, president of Events & Projects, and Octavio Beras Goico, producer of the Radio program “Music at 12”, featured above with Coco Lorenzi-de Bailliencourt, manager of the Niños de Cristo, at the event’s press conference in Santo Domingo in May, will play at the Guavaberry Golf & Country Club with a maximum of 96 players, 80% handicap, in pairs in Stableford format. The social event and tournament is meant to bring people together and will celebrate with a live concert, ‘Tributo a Santana’ performed by the Silver Band. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Orfanato Niños de Cristo, and with just of cost of RD $5,500.00 it’s well worth it for you to sign-up!
