Well it seems like just yesterday that we were at La Casita Restaurant celebrating the July edition of the Café de la Leche hosted by hosted by Julia Martinez, and now we already have another to look forward to on Thursday August 9th.
The next Café de la Leche celebration will be hosted by Cesarina de Grisolia at her Casa de Campo golf villa #194, which offers a delightful view of the Links golf course, and will no doubt be another wonderful afternoon and beautiful opportunity to spend time with our friends and neighbors, while giving to a good cause.
As in the past, the Patronato Benéfico Oriental (PBO) – Hogar del Niño asks that you bring 1,800 grams of Milex Kinder, Gold, NAN, Enfamil, Alacta Plus, Nido Crecimiento or RD $1,200 to help feed the more than 200 babies in their Crib Room. Donations from Café de la Leche events supply more than 80% of the milk used in the Crib Room each month. If you want to learn more about the Café de la Leche and the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room, let’s look back at the following video:
This is why we love the Café de la Leche gatherings and why you should not miss the upcoming events. Not only do we get together to mingle, but we do so for the babies! If you have never been to the monthly gathering, I really encourage you to join us and if you are a “regular” then please remember why you attend and don’t miss this next one! We’re looking forward to seeing you all there for a fun afternoon and as always, men are welcome too so don’t leave them at home!
