Alfy Fanjul, Raysa Fanjul
Next year the Fundación MIR is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary, and today in advance of this very special occasion we bring you a letter from Raysa and Alfy Fanjul, chairpersons of the Fundacion MIR Magical Splendor Gala being celebrated on Saturday January 17th.
Dear Casa de Campo Living readers, We are pleased to extend a special invitation for you to join us at our home in Casa de Campo on January 17th Gala. This year will be especially festive as we are celebrating the 25th MIR’s work in the community of La Romana. We are delighted that Saks Fifth Avenue, Badgely Mischka and Roberto Coin will be joining us as presenting sponsors for the evening, making the event truly memorable. We are pleased to say that, twenty-five years later, MIR now operates three schools that educate over 1,200 students. Whether the student attends elementary school, middle school, high school, or is enrolled in one of the vocational programs MIR offers, their well-being and development are the primary focus. Ninety-eight percent of the students that attend the MIR schools graduate and find employment shortly after. We are incredibly proud of these students and alumni for their accomplishments. This magical evening is an opportunity for our friends to join us as we raise funds in support of education in this extraordinary country with so many needs. We hope you join us or if you cannot attend, please consider making a gift. You may reserve your place, make a donation or choose a sponsorship level on the enclosed form. It is your generosity that will ensure the success of Fundación MIR for years to come. We appreciate your support and hope to greet you personally at our home to commemorate this organization that holds a very special place in our hearts. Sincerely,

Alfonso Fanjul Gala Co-chairperson
