DALLAS, March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With a "lively" silent auction, fun-filled casino games and a real-life cigar roller, the oldest early childhood parent teacher association in Texas plans to raise some major capital with a night honoring Cuba's capital city.
Rosemont Early Childhood PTA , which supports programs for primary, elementary and middle schools in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, will host its largest fundraiser of the year at 7:30 p.m. April 1, 2016. Attendees heading to "La Noche En Havana" should be ready to rock and roll the minute they arrive at The Empire Room at 1225 N. Riverfront Blvd. in Dallas.

Six levels of sponsorship opportunities afford a group or company the chance to invest in the children of tomorrow today. Packages range from $250 to $6,000 and include perks such as tickets to the event, logo placement in RECPTA publications and collateral, and an ad in Advocate. The local news source for five Dallas neighborhoods is a major sponsor, along with Dr. Todd Ayars, DDS PA; Grand Bank of Texas; David Griffin & Company; Kessler Pediatrics; Methodist Dallas Medical Center; Kay Wood, Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty; Oak Cliff Children's Dentist; and Realtor Jenni Stolarski.
RECPTA was started back in 1926 with a mission to enrich the educational experiences of Oak Cliff schoolchildren by providing them with opportunities to sing, dance, create and get involved in the arts beyond the classroom. Money raised from this April 1st event, along with other smaller fundraisers held throughout the school year, allows Rosemont schools to be involved with the Dallas Children's Theater Artist-In-Residence program as well as underwrites supplies for all fine arts classes and provides musical instruments and equipment for orchestras and choirs. Dance costumes, shoes, stage enhancements and library books are also purchased with charitable donations.
"The performing arts play a vital role in developing our students' capacities for critical thinking, creativity, imagination and innovation," said Brooke Price, vice president of fundraising for RECPTA. "With your support, we can not only raise but exceed our $50,000 goal to enrich the lives of some 1,200 Rosemont students."
