On Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th of February, the Hogar del Niño and the Casa de Campo community gathered together to celebrate a very successful Annual Hogar del Niño Fundraising Weekend, where everybody enjoyed a variety of sporting activities; golf, tennis, cycling, and polo, as well as a tour of the Hogar del Niño, a Home and Gardens tour and a cocktail at the Diagnostica Social.
