On Thursday September 19, 2014, Jacqueline Weld Drake hosted Casita Maria’s Pachanga Jr. Committee at her Upper East Side home for an intimate lunch in celebration of Casita Maria’s 2014 Fiesta 80th Anniversary Gala.

Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia who is one of the 2014 Fiesta’s Dinner Chairmen attended the luncheon to commend the members of the Pachanga Committee for their support of Casita Maria.

The menu included: salmon roti a la facon du maison, roast fall vegetables and a mixed green salad. For dessert guests enjoyed a wonderful strawberry shortcake with mixed fresh berries to celebrate the one-month mark to the Gala.
