Who would have thought that a cup of coffee and a few snacks shared between three ladies, would soon become one of the most active and popular fundraising activities in Casa de Campo La Romana? The now well-known charity event, the “Café de la Leche” for the Hogar del Niño, celebrated its 20th anniversary with a wonderful gathering at Voalá Café Marché last Wednesday, September 1st hosted by Gabriella Reginato.  The Café de la Leche may seem like a simple activity, and in fact, it is! However, it is extremely important. Thanks to Café de la Leche’s philanthropic events and the dedicated members of our community, Hogar del Niño’s crib room has the nutrition it needs for over two hundred babies! Café de la Leche hostesses have worked hard for the past twenty years to deliver entertaining festivities that ensure the community’s continued participation and support. We applaud the contributions BY ALL for managing to supply the Hogar del Niño with milk and formula for over 800 bottles per day! It’s an excellent cause to join and support, and most of them are fun-themed parties perfect for shaking things up in Casa de Campo! This year’s celebration was hosted by Gabriella was a beautiful gathering, with guests showing their continued support for Hogar del Niño! In a friendly, outdoor setting on the patio of Voalá Café Marché, the ladies spent the afternoon chatting and discussing fall plans, while intermittently snacking on some very delicious hors d’oeuvres and sipped on wine or Aperol Spritz on a warm summer evening. This Café de la Leche edition also featured a “creative face masks” competition where the winners received an assortment of delicious goodies!  Congratulations on 20 years, Café de la Leche— it’s certainly a milestone worth celebrating! THANK YOU ALL for making the Crib Room a success and supporting La Romana’s growing youth. If you missed it, see more photos in the gallery below, taken by Mairobi Herrera:
