Café de la Leche attendees ended the year in style at La Casita in La Marina hosted by Julia Martinez with a lot of glamour, good food, and conversations. Little is as enjoyable as gathering with neighbors, seeing friends from out of town, and catching up on topics overdue. Guests chatted about recent vacations, upcoming plans for the holidays, children’s studies, family health, and excitement for all of Casa de Campo’s Christmas events.

As the last of this year, it was truly spectacular, and with the Café de la Leche coinciding with the sunset, everyone was able to enjoy great company, food, drinks and the spectacle of the beautiful Marina Casa de Campo sunset. There’s nothing quite like it!

With festive merriment far and wide, it is no wonder why community members express this event as one of their favorite of the year. The magical Christmas Café de la Leche did not disappoint, and nor did the generosity of the attendees who on this occasion donated candies that will be given out at the Hogar del Niño’s Christmas party.

Café de la Leche events help raise supplies for the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room; over 80% of their milk supply comes from these gatherings, so it’s really important that all the community keep attending! They are also a way for the community to connect, pause busy lifestyles, and put a pin on distractions. They’ve been a way for everyone to remember what’s important in life— the people, and how contributions both big and small make a difference in the lives of others. Our Casa de Campo community is like a family, we support each other through the good times and bad, and by helping the children of La Romana our extended family has grown.

We were happy to have seen the efforts of the Patronato Benéficio Oriental flourish over this past year, and look forward to another excellent year in 2023!

Thank you to everyone for your generosity throughout the year and attendance at Café de la Leche; we hope the new year is as bright and merry!
