Café de la Leche with Cesarina de Grisolia

Last Thursday, August 9th, Cesarina de Grisolia hosted the last Café de la Leche of the summer. As always it was a wonderful to get together with lovely, stylish, and passionate ladies of Casa de Campo. It’s such a great environment to join the Casa community and assist in an excellent cause.

The charitable and fun occasion took place at the beautiful Golf Villa #194 of Cesarina de Grisolia, which affords a delightful view of the Links golf course. August is always considered one of the warmest months of the year and we were thankful to be treated to ice-cold sangrias (which were fabulous!) and caught the breeze on her terrace. Add homemade snacks and especially delightful sweets and you have yourself a perfect evening, which it was!

The sun shone on the gathering and the lovely ladies of Casa de Campo themselves shone in a rainbow of bright colors, that perfectly reflected the beauty of this season. In fact the fashion included such a mix of neon and summery shades that it looks as if the dress code was “colorful”!

Congratulations to Cesarina de Grisolia for a wonderful event, and thank you to all those who came out to support the babies of Hogar del Niño. Café de La Leche collects more than 60% of the milk used to nourish the more than 200 babies of the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room (Sala de Cuna).
