In last month’s Café de la Leche we were gearing up for the Casa de Campo Corre; now having seen hundreds of participants cross the finish line, we are ready for the Christmas edition of Café de la Leche! As is yearly tradition, it will be held in Mrs. Xiomara Menéndez’s villa, Bahía Minitas #5.
The lovely home of Mrs. Xiomara Menéndez, founder of the Hogar del Niño, is sure to be as stunning as years past, filled with holiday decorations and the sounds of Christmas carols from the children of the Hogar del Niño. Donations of chocolates and candies, as well as milk, is welcome this Friday as the school readies itself for their annual Christmas party.
Have a look at the photos from last year’s Decemeber Café de la Leche, taken by Mariana Heredia, to get excited for the upcoming event! We will see you there!
