Last Friday, I attended my first Café de la Leche, and it was everything I expected and more. It was wonderful to get together with lovely, stylish, and most of all, passionate ladies of Casa de Campo. Including me, there were several newcomers to the event and the welcome wagon was in full gear! 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. As spring is upon us with the warm temperatures rolling ever so quickly in, we were 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!
Style and elegance certainly played a part in this month’s Café de la Leche, but what else can be expected from Casa ladies? We saw a combination of light pastels with bright accents.
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). Read more about our last visit to the crib room and why it is so special.
