Rapidly approaching is what we’ve all been looking forward to— Fundación MIR’s Family Weekend for Life 2019! By now, we’re sure you’ve heard all the buzz relating to the upcoming affair and even received flyers to your doorstep, but if not, here’s an extra reminder for you to mark your calendars and come out to support our local charity.

On the 17th of August, the Fundación MIR will be celebrating their “Family Weekend”, a fundraising event that includes all kinds of fun activities, and all the profits go to the foundation who provides education and other basic necessities to children and families in need here in the Dominican Republic and more specifically in the local La Romana area.

The events will kick off at 10:00 a.m. with a tennis clinic for kids at La Romana Country Club, with that prime example of Casa de Campo’s Sporting Life being immediately followed by another, a golf tournament at the La Romana Country Club course teeing off at 1:00 p.m.

The next event won’t take place until 8:00 p.m., where a fancy party with dinner and dancing will be held at Minitas Beach – dress code is “tropical chic”, and awards will be given out for the day’s tournament contestants. The dinner is once again being sponsored by the Casa de Campo hotel, so we can expect a magnificent buffet of the finest cuisine the Casa de Campo kitchens have to offer… and after dinner, you can expect to dance the night away to a Dominican Orchestra band! Ohhh and there will also be a fun raffle with the chance to pick up some really great goodies! But the festivities won’t be over just yet, with an after-party taking place right there at Minitas Beach, with DJ Edwardo Louder.

So we implore all of you to come along to these fantastic events, it’s for a good cause – and a good time! Of course, if you can’t go for any particular reason, there’s no better time than now to donate to the fantastic cause – education, which the Fundación MIR strives to provide to more and more children every year.
