At last Friday’s Café de la Leche event many Casa de Campo ladies dressed in colorful spring styles, taking advantage of the day’s tropical weather and breeze. Snacking on a variety of pastries and cocktails, guests chatted warmly on the patio of Gabriella Roncari’s villa and enjoyed her absolutely stunning backyard view from Riomar #9.
It didn’t take long for ladies to get around to discussing all the exciting events for the upcoming Hogar del Niño weekend. After all, it is their 20th anniversary! A milestone for the La Romana charity, the Hogar del Niño has long existed to meet the growing needs of the town’s impoverished youth.
The Hogar del Niño weekend allows everyone the opportunity to join the golf tournament, tennis tournament, and mini triathlon — reserve your space and tickets simply by submitting this form to the Patronato Benéfico Oriental offices. Additionally, tour the Hogar del Niño for a close look at the facilities and daily operations and meet the students to see exactly where your money goes. A substantial addition to the school was made last year with the creation of a 77,500 square foot sports pavilion!
The impressive contribution of the Patronato Benéfico Oriental to the children does not go unnoticed. Café de la Leche works to lend a helping hand to the Hogar del Niño and ensure a healthy and happy lifestyle for the babies growing up at the Crib Room of the school.
Take part in these fun, monthly Café de la Leche gatherings, and especially enjoy a once-a-year commemoration this weekend for the Hogar del Niño. Of course, a concert with Enclave on Friday, and dinner – dance party on Saturday are among the occasion’s not-to-miss events! We can’t wait to see you all there!!
