The next Café de la Leche celebration is taking place on Friday the 13th of April at the Casa de Campo villa of Isabel Purcell and will no doubt be a magnificent event and a wonderful way to continue the celebrations of Semana Santa (Easter Week, April 2nd – 8th).
A longtime supporter of the Hogar del Niño, as well as many other charities, Isabel Purcell was also the elegant and welcoming hostess of a Café de la Leche hosted last April 2011, which was a great success, with delicious snacks and drinks and a gorgeous view onto the “Links” golf course. This year now that the “Links” golf course has literally just re-opened (last Saturday the 24th of March) it will be nice for all the non-golfing ladies of Casa de Campo to get a sneak peak of the improvements from the comfort of Isabel’s tropical terrace.
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. Last month the Casa de Campo ladies were whisked aboard the “Costa Luminosa” Cruise ship for an evening of champagne and glamour with a spectacular view of La Romana town – click here for photos.
The aim of the Café de la Leche gatherings are to boost the milk supplies of the Hogar del Niño (a daycare and educational facility in La Romana) – which uses the milk to feed more than 200 babies cared for daily in it’s crib room. Everyone is welcome to attend these great events and it’s totally free – you are just requested to bring some dried/powdered milk, cereals or baby formula to contribute.
