The new year hasn’t even begun and we already have events to jot down in our calendar! Next year, the annual Hogar del Niño Weekend will take place on February 17th and 18th, and they will celebrate their 20th anniversary!!
Casa de Campo will once again be host to a fabulous 2-day weekend with activities ranging from bicycle racing, zumba classes, tours of the homes and gardens around the resort, golf, tennis, and a huge dance party to finish off the weekend. The Hogar del Niño Weekend is a fundraising activity held to raise attention and aid for the Patronato Benéficio Oriental’s organization and schools. It’s the perfect excuse to have a great time and be charitable.
The Hogar del Niño is a educational and daycare center in La Romana – which cares for more than 1,500 children on a daily basis. More than that, it also offers medical and dental care, special schooling to over 75 hearing impaired and blind children, as well as vocational training for over 200 students.
In last year’s event, Casa de Campo inagurated its new motocross track, and a concert was held in honor of Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday. We can’t wait to see and experience everything in store this year as they celebrate their 20 year anniversary! We we will love every minute! Stay tuned as we keep you posted on the specific details. For now, SAVE THE DATE!
