If you’re ready to continue your start to the new year in the best way possible, look no further than next weekend! While many vacationers will be heading home soon after a holiday filled with “fiestas, fiestas, fiestas” (as a friend recently summarized) we hope you’ll stick around for the Magical Splendor Gala with the Fundación MIR next Saturday, January 13th. The fundraising event to benefit the non-profit’s social and educational programs for the children of La Romana will include a golf tournament at 1:00pm at the La Romana Country Club and follow with a dinner, dance, and fashion show at Casa Grande at 8:00pm.

We’re ecstatic esteemed fashion designer Naeem Khan will make his third appearance at the Magical Splendor Gala. The New York based designer who told CasaLife magazine he met Raysa Fanjul in Palm Beach and feel in love with the idea of coming to Casa de Campo for the Fundación MIR has showed tremendous support for the charity. Over the past two years, he has donated several dresses (the equivalent of close to US $100,000) which went to some very fortunate ladies attending the gala and no doubt has aided the school’s educational initiatives and expansion.

The Fundación MIR supports three schools in La Romana, an elementary school for children through 4th grade and a boy’s school and a girl’s school for youth 5th-12th grade. They provide the highest level of educational services as MIR teachers receive multiple training sessions led by Florida International University (FIU) professors throughout the year. The foundation also looks to implement a year-around dental program on campus.

The Magical Splendor Gala is an exceptional way to benefit the local charity’s school system and enjoy an evening of the finest standards in Casa de Campo. Dine and dance the night away and view Naeem Khan’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, said to be influenced by Russian dancer, Anna Pavlova. A “Mystery Shopping Wall” with merchandise by SAKS 5th Avenue, Roberto Coins, and Ranjana Khan will be a delicious addition to the night and a portion of proceeds will benefit the Fundación MIR.
