On January 18, 2014, Tiffany & Co. joined “Fundación MIR” in the” Casa de Campo” resort in La Romana, Dominican Republic, for their 23rd annual “Magical Splendor for Life” fundraising weekend celebrating all of the organization’s success. 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.
