Emilia and J.Pepe Fanjul cordially invite you to the 26th edition of the Cartier Benefit Cocktail on Thursday, December 29th, at Casa Grande in Casa de Campo, held in support of the Fundación MIR and the Hogar del Niño.
The annual event, which has raised more than US $2 million for the Fundación MIR and Hogar del Niño charities, once again promises Casa de Campo villa owners and guests a glamorous and entertaining evening at the Fanjul’s family home. This is always a very popular event for villa owners, residents, and visitors due to its sheer elegance and beauty, no doubt enhanced by Cartier’s exquisite jewelry.
Although the specific details of the prestigious event have not yet been revealed, we can assure you there will be a Cartier exhibit on display, and an auction – both live and silent. This year will be slightly different than previous as they will only be having the traditional cocktail on the terrace. Plus, a raffle will be included.
There’s still time to buy your tickets! Entry into the cocktail benefit can be purchased at the Fundación MIR and Patronato Benéfico Oriental offices for USD $150 and the raffle tickets are USD $10.

Another Casa de Campo holiday season has come and gone, and with it came a fine procession of visitors, events and exciting developments for the Casa de Campo resort—not least the opening of two new restaurants (SBG, Sofias Bar & Grill and Pubbelly Sushi) in the Marina Casa de Campo. Yet the jewel in the Casa de Campo holiday crown was once again, as it has been for the last 24 years, the Cartier Benefit. Read more here.
