Spring is finally here and what a better way to welcome it than with a “Tropical” themed Café de la Leche this month?! On Friday, April 13th, the ladies of Cafe de la Leche are hosting the monthly charitable gathering collaborating with Peperoni Restaurant at La Marina and Aurora Ideas: Espacios with a Tropical theme!
After another fantastic fundraising get-together at the Salon Internacional at Casa de Campo Hotel last month where everybody wore a touch of red to commemorate International Women’s Day, this month’s new theme promises to be fun! Picture bright 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, supplying 80% of the milk and formula they need to operate each month. It’s an excellent cause to join and support, and with fun dress-up parties it shakes things up in Casa de Campo!
We can’t wait to see you there for some fun in the sun and delicious food and drinks! As always, men are welcome too! And remember to please contribute RD$1,200 or the equivalent in milk or formula for the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room.
