Tiffany & Co. has been a proud supporter of Fundacion MIR for seven consecutive years helping to raise funds for this foundation that provides successful educational programs to under served children in the Dominican Republic. This year, Tiffany & Co. presented the Mystery Blue Box Fundraiser, the newest version of the interactive fundraising activity, which gave attendees the chance to walk through the boxes and purchase a Tiffany Blue Box containing a surprise item inside.

The jewelry prizes included numerous Tiffany collections which were all donated in support of raising funds for the beautiful cause. The exquisite pieces ranged from beautiful Tiffany Atlas watches, to bold pieces designed by Paloma Picasso and Elsa Peretti. Through Tiffany & Co.’s generosity, this event helped raise much needed funds for the continued MIR Project initiatives.

During the event-filled weekend, including an exclusive golf tournament at La Romana Country Club for the entire family, guests were also invited to a Gala dinner at the home of Raysa and Alfy Fanjul, which included a preview of exclusive pieces from the 2014 spring and summer collections of renowned Venezuelan designer, Angel Sanchez. The fashion show was followed by a magnificent awards ceremony presented by emcees, Anthony Alvarez and Pamela Sued, to celebrate the triumphs of the golf tournament.

The winners were presented with a Tiffany & Co. donated crystal award. The night’s festivities continued with live entertainment by DJ Gringo from Miami, FL and a special performance by La Bobba Band, the famous Dominican musicians who play with super star Juan Luis Guerra. The foundations supporters enjoyed delectable gourmet fare prepared by the chefs at Casa de Campo Hotel, and cocktails by Ron Atlántico and Chivas were enjoyed by all in attendance and brought the night full circle for a most enjoyable evening.

High profile personalities in attendance included Miss Universe Dominican Republic Yaritza Miguelina Reyes Ramirez, world renowned designer Angel Sanchez, Fundacion MIR President Lian Fanjul de Azqueta, Fundacion MIR Co-founder Alfy Fanjul, Fundacion MIR Vice-President Raysa Fanjul, Fundacion MIR Executive Director Lyanne Azqueta, Tiffany & Co.
