Save the Date for the Magical Splendor for Life Gala this January 2018!

This post is also available in: Spanish

Save the date! The 28th annual Magical Splendor for Life by the Fundación MIR is scheduled for Saturday, January 13th, 2018. The Magical Splendor for Life annual fundraising event hosted by Alfy and Raysa Fanjul brings together a wide international crowd for a great cause. The traditional event that falls within the first few weeks of the new year includes a golf tournament and a dinner-dance party with a fashion show by an internationally acclaimed designer.

For the third year in a row, one of Casa de Campo’s most elegant social and fundraising occasions will see the return of Naeem Khan to Casa Grande. Back in 2016, during his first participation in this event, we sat down with the remarkably talented designer for an interview in CasaLife. If you weren’t able to read back then, you can find it here! The past year, he showcased his extraordinary Spring/ Summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection where florals made a striking statement throughout the night.

Come January, his Spring/Summer 2018 show is one that cannot be missed! With Russian dancer, Anna Pavlova as his spring muse, it promises to bring a ton of looks to the runway — from beautiful black and white ensembles to tutu skirts and long tiered gowns, along with his usual bold colors.

The Magical Splendor will tee-off with a golf tournament played at the La Romana Country Club at 1 pm and be followed by the dinner-gala at Casa Grande. As in years past, there will be a “Mystery Shopping Wall” where those who make a contribution receive an exclusive surprise gift! A portion of each purchase benefits the MIR Charities, as do gala ticket sales for MIR housing, medical aid, education and supplies for the children of La Romana.

Save The Date to join the cause and enjoy the celebration!

MIR Magical Splendor Gala, 2017

For the second year in a row, we witnessed the extraordinary work of Naeem Khan as we celebrated the children of the Fundación MIR at the Magical Splendor Gala, hosted by Alfy and Raysa Fanjul on January 14th. In its 27th edition, the annual gala benefitted the social and educational projects of the foundation which runs three schools in La Romana. The evening saw plenty of residents and guests of the Casa de Campo community dine and dance the night away, even amidst a sprinkling of rain at Casa Grande. Continue reading here…
