This past weekend in the Casa de Campo resort was a bit more active than usual, all thanks to the Fundación MIR Family Day, which brought together Casa de Campo villa owners, residents, and visitors, who enjoyed a circuit of activities that started at La Romana Country Club with a golf tournament and a tennis clinic for kids, finishing up with an elegant soiree at Minitas Beach Club.
Each year this fundraising event is celebrated in our Casa de Campo Resort for the benefit of Fundación MIR, which runs three schools in La Romana with more than 2,400 students, who through the generous support of the Casa de Campo community, multiple businesses, and visitors of different nationalities, are able to give their students the education they need for a bright future.
The night was hosted by the popular and charismatic Gabriella Reginato, Sergio Pierret was in charge of the music, and the spectacular audiovisual production by Nelson García Fortuna. As is tradition, a group of students from Fundación MIR presented a wonderful musical and dance presentation led by the graduate and music teacher Felix Cruz Santana.
Mrs. Lian Fanjul de Azqueta took the stage to thank everyone for their support in helping the Fundación MIR provide the youth of La Romana with education and the opportunity for a better life. “Each of you is a bit of Fundación MIR, everything we have achieved has been because you have believed in me and in our work. I invite you all to get to know our schools and thus see a little piece of the future La Romana.”
The night continued with the prize-giving ceremony giving out the medals to all the kids that participated in the tennis clinics and awards to the winners of the golf tournament played at the La Romana Country Club (pictures coming soon!).
Congratulations to the Fundación MIR for once again organizing a wonderful event, which we are sure was very successful in helping sustain the three Fundación MIR schools and their future projects!
