Save the date, and to help get you excited here is a reminder of last year’s MIR Bazaar and Sugar Golf Tournament activities…
The Sugar Golf Tournament is the Fundación MIR’s original fundraising event, from which Lian Fanjul de Azqueta, Founder and President of the charity got the seed money to open the “Casa de Paz”, which has now become the internationally recognized foundation, today called the “Fundación MIR.”
Originally just a “normal” golf tournament, “The Sugar” was founded in 1984 by Alfy Fanjul and Don Creamer (pictured left), but when Alfy (Lian’s brother) won in 1990 he donated his winnings to Lian, thus transforming the Sugar golf tournament into a charity event for the Fundación MIR, and as such one of the most glamorous, exclusive and important events in the Casa de Campo social calendar.
Today, “The Sugar” now incorporates a golf component headed by Alfy, as well as a shooting component headed by one of Lian’s other brother’s Pepe, played in Casa de Campo at the the Casa de Campo Shooting Center and “Rancho Peligro”.
The Fundación MIR
