As is often the case at this time of year, a sudden downpour of rain during the afternoon nearly had all Casa de Campo’s ladies running for the hills, but fortunately for us the rain stopped and the sun came out just in time for the event to begin!
The Azimut Café, which opened last August in the Marina Casa de Campo is a modern and beautiful “coffee shop” which serves coffees and soft drinks to the sailors of the Marina Casa de Campo and the residents of the Casa de Campo resort. The Azimut Café is open Mondays to Saturdays from 8am to 7pm and is ordinarily the perfect place to relax in peace – on this occasion however, with more than 40 Casa de Campo ladies taking part in the Cafe de la Leche, the atmosphere was much more “lively” than normal.
Yrene’s guests enjoyed a selection of sweet and savory snacks such as mini quiche and pizza as well mini chocolate croissants and fruity pastries – washed down with the Azimut Café’s Nespresso coffees and/or some champagne!
About the Cafe de la Leche
The Cafe de la Leche is a monthly charitable event, a little like a coffee or a tea party held for the ladies of Casa de Campo (although men are occasionally invited) to boost the milk supplies of the Hogar del Niño in La Romana – which uses the milk to feed the more than 200 babies cared for daily in it’s crib room. Everyone is welcome to attend this great event, it’s totally free – you are just requested to bring some dried/powdered milk, cereals or baby formula to contribute. The Hogar del Niño is a children’s day-care and education center in La Romana which cares for more than 1300 children every day.
