On Friday March 18th, it was the perfect afternoon to gather with friends on behalf of the children of Villa Caoba. Fundación Lirio del Valle organized a beautiful get together at Toronjas #7 in Casa de Campo, hosted by our dear friend, Inge Demyttenaere.
Throughout the sunny afternoon, many of the wonderful members of the Casa de Campo community enjoyed an afternoon lunch out on the terrace and got to know more about the organization. Villa Caoba is a small community of La Romana where Fundación Lirio del Valle helps provide schooling and feeding, contributing to the proper physical and intellectual development of the children.
Lunch consisted of delicious sandwiches, salads, fruits and cake, and there was also a sale of lovely resort dresses by Klaudia Becker and a line of beauty products by Halka, which is a Dominican company that has been a loyal supporter of this cause and is also a sponsor to several children. The get together even included a raffle with prices from Halka!
All funds to the organization are raised through contributions from sponsors, voluntary donations, charitable auctions, concerts and more, and are used entirely for schooling and educational activities.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the next event to support Fundación Lirio del Valle and we hope to see you all there!
