Prada purseIt’s every girls dream come true! The chance to get our hands on a Prada handbag for just US$300!

Also up for grabs for just US$300 are a Channel handbag, Bajra silk and cashmere pashminas, Alexander McQueen scarves, Gucci and Christian Dior sunglasses, Tory Burch cosmetic bags, and Roberto Coin jewellery. So how and where can you get them?

Alexander Mcqueen scarfWell ladies and gentlemen, the secret is at the Fundación MIR Magical Splendor Gala & Fashion Show – this Saturday January 17th at Casa Grande. You see as lead sponsor of the occasion, Saks 5th Avenue and Roberto Coin jewellery have together donated 50 “mystery boxes” which are available to buy now or at the event on Saturday.

Boxes are priced at US$300 (with 100% of the proceedings destined for the Fundación MIR), and once purchased you get the opportunity to select a number… and at the end of the night you will be given your box – and maybe you’ll be the lucky “winner” of that coveted Channel bag, or a beautiful Prada purse!

With 100% of the proceeds of the “mystery boxes” going directly to the Fundación MIR and their educational programs, this special represents an additional income of a whopping US$15,000, a handsome sum that will be used to used to pay for scholarships, school supplies, computers and much more! Shopping never felt so good!

Now remember there are only 50 “mystery boxes”, and they are already available for pre-sale, so to make sure you get one, please contact the Fundación MIR immediately, before it’s too late! Call the Fundación MIR on (809) 523-8270.

Alternatively if you prefer your purchases to be more deliberate and less mystery, the Saks 5th Ave & Badgley Mischka Boutique featuring Roberto Coin jewellery is open this week from Friday January 16th through to Sunday January 18th at the La Romana Country Club. The boutique will be open from 10am to 5pm, and with 10% of proceeds being donated to the Fundación MIR you can shop with a clear conscience!

[NOTE: The images used in this article are not of the actual items inside the “mystery boxes”, the items are still a mystery even to us, but in case you fell in love with the Prada “Saffiano Lux Tote” pictured above or the Alexander McQueen “Rainbow Wings Silk Scarf” pictured above right, you can find them on their website,, and yes they do ship to the Dominican Republic.]
