La Casa es su Casa

“In The Company of Young Children”

La Casa es su Casa, our annual cocktails and hors d’oeuvres reception, was originally scheduled for April 7th at New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). But due to coronavirus closures, we are now re-imagining our annual fundraiser in a completely new way.

Please enjoy this short video of gratitude and appreciation to our event supporters and honorees. The video will also provide a glimpse into how we are adapting the event into an online experience.

With the theme “In the Company of Young Children,” we will celebrate La Casa de Don Pedro’s entry into infant and toddler care. The event will also recognize state and local leaders who have prioritized the well-being of New Jersey’s youngest citizens, particularly those born to families with economic, educational, social-emotional, and health disparities.
