Café de la Leche is back! The time that the Casa de Campo ladies (and sometimes gentlemen) gather around for a fashionable afternoon/evening to have a good time while at the same time supporting a good cause. This Friday, August 9th, the Patronato Benéfico Oriental (PBO) requests your attendance at a very special edition of Café de la Leche. The event will take place at Los Lagos #21 and its hosts, Amalia I. de Hernández and María Amalia Hernández, invites you to don your best yacht club attire!
This year marks 18 years since the beginning of the monthly gatherings that began in 2001! For those of you who don’t know, the Cafe de la Leche is essentially a fundraising event, which everyone is invited to attend in exchange for a donation of dried milk and baby formula. The contributions gathered at these events currently account for 80% of the milk consumed in the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room, with your help the Cafe de la Leche hopes to increase this percentage to help many more children in need.
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, we 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!
