By Judy Gordon-Conde and Jennifer Conde-Powers

Recently, the Club Cívico de Damas of Puerto Rico (CCDPR) held its annual major fund-raising event at the Caribe Hilton Hotel, titled “Hat Show — The Royalty.” This year, Jannette Rivera Pedroso, president of CCDPR, and the Hat Show committee chose to benefit “Cocina del Angel,” operated by SFM Charities.

This organization provides services and food to older adults who have been abandoned or have been victims of crime.

Close to 500 people attended the event, mainly women who wore their best gala-worthy dresses and hats to “give life, hope, and dignity to our older adults.” Additionally, this year’s Hat Show was dedicated to CCDPR’s fourtime past president, Wanda Navajas, who was recognized for her hard work and dedication to those in need. Maricarmen Aguayo presided over the event’s organization committee to make the event a success. The guests enjoyed a dance presentation and lovely lunch, culminating with the hat contest, which included renowned judges Caridad Fernández, Jorge Roig, Rafael Torrech, Javier Martínez, Cynthia Rodríguez and Annette Vaillant.
