June is almost here, which means we have another Café de la Leche celebration to look forward to – on this occasion it will be hosted by the Marina Casa de Campo on Thursday June 6th at 5:00pm at the Casa de Campo Yacht Club. And rather unusual for a Café de la Leche – on this occasion ladies are invited to bring along a male partner!
During the last Café de la Leche held at Casa de Campo Yacht Club (in September 2013), Scotiabank was the generous host and they donated US$25,000 to the Patronato Benéfico Oriental charity. This generous donation from Scotiabank was made as part of their “Illuminando el Mañana” (lighting up tomorrow) program, which supports and promotes charities and causes who are providing opportunities to the youth of today, so that they may have a better future tomorrow.
This year we have enjoyed a great number of fantastic Café de la Leche occasions. Great events to gather milk (for the babies) and raise funds for the Hogar del Niño daycare and education center in La Romana. The year’s Café de la Leche gatherings started on January 4th, when Shine concept store welcomed us all with a great event in Altos de Chavón, followed by in February the Café de la Leche with Annie Paniagua at her spectacular home with its magnificent view over the Chavón river and the Marina Casa de Campo. Also in February we enjoyed the Hogar del Niño’s 16th fundraising weekend – with a record turnout, an evening of opera hosted by Casa de Campo villa owners Mario and Nicoletta Galletto, as well asthe Adopt A Crib dinner at the villa of Ramon and Xiomara Menenedez… Then in March and April we all had a great time at the Café de la Leche gatherings hosted by Jeanette Martinez de Lima and Isabel Purcell! Meanwhile the last Café de la Leche was hosted by Claudia Reyes de Lama in her beautiful villa in Las Colinas.
See you there!

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.
