There was much to talk about at this past edition of Café de la Leche. Held at Punta Minitas 35A, Café de la Leche’s community members quickly fell into conversations with Ms. Joyce Berman, who had recently returned from Manhattan. The magnetic host was a bundle of energy that whisked away thoughts of the rainy afternoon.
The team of Casa de Campo Corre supporters, Yoheidy Sánchez, Xioma Menéndez, Sandra Alvarado, Anny Abreu and Alessandra Avanzini proudly displayed their 2016 Casa de Campo Corre shirts – and by the way these are excellent shirts! Their stellar composition and design make them a long-lasting exercise tee, and give you even further reason to get your ticket for the race! These ladies are excited for another fantastic run that draws so many into the resort to support the children of La Romana. See Casa de Campo’s cool promotional video of the marathon here!
We saw many friendly faces among the attendees on Friday evening, including Phyllis Berney (click here to read about our personal tour of the Hogar del Niño with her!), Marilyn Chattman, Merrilee Gagnon, Juanita Rodriguez, and the always fashionable Erika Vilain along with many others! Guests snacked on mini sandwiches, pastelitos, and cookies that were a huge hit. As Café de la Leche events bring in 80% of the formula and milk needed to feed the babies of the Hogar del Niño Crib Room, we encourage you to be on the look out for the next announcement and enjoy an evening with friends while supporting a wonderful charity.
