It’s been a busy month for the Hogar del Nino with the incredible Pitbull concert as well as the Cafe de la Leche at La Cantina in Altos de Chavon… but the good times don’t stop – the next Cafe de la Leche has now been scheduled for next Friday the 4th of October.
This time being hosted by JR & Co. event rentals owned by Casa de Campo villa owner Janet Rivera and Ramon Mejia, the gathering will be held outside of Casa de Campo, at the company’s La Romana headquarters just a 10 minute drive outside of the resort.
When JR & Co. opened their new branch in La Romana, they celebrated the occasion in great style with an unforgettable party with music, dancing and even a circus show! And while the Cafe de la Leche hosted by JR & Co will probably be a little more relaxed, there can be no doubt that Janet Rivera will host a fabulous Cafe de la Leche – and with all their incredible furniture and decor, the ambiance will no doubt be out of this world.
“We have focused on bringing an upgrade to the market, with products totally different from what competitors have and much more.”
— Janet Rivera, Owner/founder of JR & Co.
The gathering, which unites the Casa de Campo community; residents and villa owners, as well as occasional Casa de Campo resort guests, is a charitable occasion which gathers funds and milk supplies for the “Crib Room” at the Hogar del Niño. The “crib room” is probably the most popular place in the Hogar del Niño and is where more than 200 babies are cared for everyday. It is the milk donations gathered at the monthly Café de la Leche events that account for more than 40% of the milk drank by these little ones.

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.
