Last Friday October the 4th, we celebrated a rather friendly and interesting Café de la Leche, this time at JR & Co. in La Romana, which despite a sudden downpour that made arriving to the gathering a little tricky, was a marvelous success with a great number of guests in attendance – umbrellas and all!
“Every single time I have an event it rains, l’ll take that as a blessing!”
— Janet Rivera, owner and founder at JR & Co.
With a gorgeous set-up of furniture and decorations in a black, red and white theme, Janet Rivera was able to host the monthly gathering for the Hogar del Niño charity with a glamorous and elegant touch, while also showcasing the very best of JR & Co. – “Piezas Únicas, Ambientes Extraordinarios”, an event rentals “store” that takes event rentals to a level beyond what has been standard in this industry.
Our fabulous Casa de Campo ladies made the occasion even more interesting and glamorous, turning out in the season’s latest fashion trends of bright tropical colors; hot pink, orange and emerald green, expertly accessorized with trendy statement jewelry (of course we’ve come to expect nothing less!).

Welcomed with a delicious selection of iced tea, coffee, milk and an exotic sangria, accompanied by tasty picadera and some fine chocolates, the guests had a fabulous time indulging a little, chatting a lot and feasting their eyes with admiration and lust on the spectacle that was all the decor JR & Co. offers for rentals. With a philosophy of constant reinvention, guests could appreciate JR & Co.’s impressive array of new products – selected with great care and pertaining to all parts of the world.

This, as all Café de la Leche gatherings, was a special occasion not only uniting our Casa de Campo community, but more importantly – to support and help this extraordinary cause, which each month ensures plenty of milk is gathered for the more than 200 babies at the Hogar del Niño’s “Crib Room”.
“It was a great honor and a pleasure to support a cause that I admire so much… the work the Hogar del Niño does is truly admirable!”
— Janet Rivera

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) and usually takes place on the first Friday of the month, hosted by a member of the Casa de Campo villa at her Casa de Campo villa or occasionally restaurant/business.
