Spring is finally here and what a better way to welcome it than with a Café de la Leche this month?! On Thursday, April 4th, Yrene Caslini will be hosting the traditional charitable gathering at her home in Vivero 36, and invites you to wear pastel colors in honor of the new season!   After another fantastic fundraising get-together at Shish Kabab Restaurant in La Romana back on February where everybody was able to enjoy delicious Arabian food prepared by Victoria Giha, live music and a raffle with pieces by Timo Pimentel this month’s new theme promises to be fun! Picture pastel-colored outfits, refreshing drinks, and delicious appetizers, with old and new friends! Talk about a recipe for success! 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! Preparing a staggering 800 bottles of milk per day, the Hogar del Niño looks to the support of Café de la Leche’s fundraising to help make it happen. It’s an excellent cause to join and support, and with fun dress-up parties it shakes things up in Casa de Campo!  Hogar del Niño asks you to contribute Milex Kinder, Gold, NAN, Enfamil, Alacta Plus, Nido Crecimiento of 1,800 grams, or RD $1,200 for the crib rooms of Hogar del Niño where they feed, bathe, and clothe more than 200 babies daily. Join the amazing cause and community friendship of Café de la Leche. We look forward to seeing you at the Spring edition!! As always, men are welcome too!  *pictures and gallery below, taken by Dariana Soriano at the Café de la Leche at Shish Kabab February 28th, 2019:
