Charity related sporting events in Casa de Campo are no rarity. Golf is indeed a popular pastime that offers an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors, it’s a great sport to practice during these times that call for social distancing, and it brings communities together as we’ve seen so often for a good cause – together there’s no doubt we really make a difference!
Every year, the Patronato Benéfico Oriental hosts their annual Hogar del Niño Weekend as the perfect way for the community to have a great time and be charitable. This year, things will be slightly different, but as always your support will have the same or greater impact on the lives of the children and young people of the Hogar del Niño and their communities. The XXIV Hogar del Niño Weekend will take place on Saturday, February 13, 2021, with a Solidarity Golf Tournament at the Las Romana Country Club.
The Hogar del Niño is an 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 the midst of a thousand uncertainties and difficulties, the Patronato Benéfico Oriental and the Hogar del Niño have worked proactively finding solutions to the continuous daily challenges, monitoring the well-being of their students through medical care, the department of psychology and social work, and focusing on ensuring the best education hand in hand with innovation and technology (which are essential today), this being a challenging issue for their students since they have very limited or no access to internet services at home. It is the PBO’s goal to provide access to quality learning for all by investing in literacy and digital infrastructure.
This is the impact your support of their traditional fundraising event will have. Let’s join them in their efforts by participating, supporting, or donating! Save the date!
