Last Friday May the 4th, the ladies of Casa de Campo were transported back to the 1970’s and the era of the hippies for a “Hippie Bingo” themed Café de la Leche hosted by Adriana Feaugas.
If there is one thing that the Casa de Campo community loves more than anything – it’s dressing up. So when given the opportunity to dress up in in pschedlic prints, afro wigs and silly sunglasses – the ladies of Casa de Campo more than rose to the challenge!
Fun-loving hostess, Adriana specially prepared for the event, by decorating her Casa de Campo villa with giant brightly colored flowers and even a wall hanging with peace signs, whilst posing in a bright yellow afro wig and a classic disco ball necklace. GRROOOVYY! Meanwhile, other Casa de Campo ladies were seen sporting a variety of 70’s inspired fashions such as mini-dresses, head bands, tie dye, feathers, chunky, funky jewelry and lots of bold flowery print clothing! Flower power!
After a couple of moonshines (drinks) and a few Venezuelan snacks (created by our generous Venezuelan hostess herself), it was time for the funky ladies to shake their groovy thang – at the bingo tables!!!
Casa de Campo ladies do “Hippie Chic”
Peace out dudes!
About the Cafe de la Leche
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) to boost the milk supplies of the Hogar del Niño in La Romana – which uses the milk to feed the more than 200 babies cared for daily in it’s crib room. Everyone is welcome to attend this great event, it’s totally free – you are just requested to bring some dried/powdered milk, cereals or baby formula to contribute. The Hogar del Niño is a children’s day-care and education center in La Romana which cares for more than 1300 children every day.
