The Fundacion MIR Family Weekend For Life: The Golf Tournament

This post is also available in: Spanish


This Saturday was the Fundacion MIR Family Weekend for Life event with fun golf and tennis tournaments, followed by a wonderful celebratory dinner, dance and after party! As I spent the entire day taking photos of everything and everyone, in this article I bring you photos and the results of the golf tournament.

The following is a summary of the tournament and the results, sent to us from Dave Pfisterer, Casa de Campo’s Head Golf Professional:

Saturday, August 14, 2010 – MIR Foundation Golf Tournament at La Romana Country Club. This year’s tournament was played on a course composed of the front 9 at Dye Fore and the East 9 at LRCC. Despite a forecast that called for rain showers, 101 players teed off, competing in an individual stableford format. After an early shower, the sky cleared and the players were able to finish without any further delay.

Ladies Division:
Winner: Tatiana Sourtmatch – 47 pts.
Runner-up: Mari Ledesma – 37 pts.
Gross Winner: Maure Croze – 23 pts.

Men’s Division:
Winner: Guillermo Quirch – 46 pts.
Runner-up: Guiseppe Gandolfo – 44 pts.
3rd Place: Juan Donesteves – 42 pts.
Gross Winner: Guillermo Quirch, IV – 37 pts.

Thank you all for playing and supporting such a worthwhile cause.

The Fundacion MIR (Mission International Rescue) is a non-profit organization that works to supply the Dominican Republic’s most marginalized people with a variety of life-altering services. Since 1990, we have served the women, youth and children of La Romana and the Eastern region of the Dominican Republic by partnering with and providing funding for social programs. With the help of benefactors and individual contributions, the programs provide a home, medical assistance, education and technical preparation for the people that are most in need in our community.
