On October 18, 2014, the JW Marriott Marquis will be transformed to what the world-wide famous Tropicana club would be like in the year 2020, in a free CUBA. The nightclub feel will be recreated with an outrageous, two-story show stage housing performances with upbeat sounds reminiscent of Celia Cruz and her band as Tropicana show girls dance choreographed pieces throughout the stage and ballroom. Be prepared to witness the feeling of being in a free CUBA, which we all hope to be in one day with your help and sponsorships for the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba.

Funds raised will benefit the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba’s Somos Un Solo Pueblo (SUSP) scholarship program, the Ladies in White, and providing Cuban civil society with basic resources and humanitarian aid.

Admission is $2,500 per table of 10 or $250 per individual ticket. Sponsorships ranging from $25,000 to $3,000 are available. Please visit the website at www.FHRCuba.org or, for more information and reservations, contact Sisi Portuondo, Events Manager, at Sportuondo@FHRCuba.org or call 305-390-2786, Ext. 22.

Cuba’s Ladies in White participate with guests at Noche Tropical.

About Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba

The Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba (“FHRC”) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established in 1992 to promote a nonviolent transition to a free and democratic Cuba with zero tolerance for human rights violations. FHRC seeks to empower human rights defenders and activists who are working for change in Cuba through nonviolent means. Some of these individuals include prisoners of conscience and their families, independent journalists and bloggers, cultural activists, as well as members of independent unions and marginalized sectors. FHRC also maintains initiatives outside of Cuba to promote efforts by Cuban Civil Society within the Island, including fundraising campaigns and raising awareness about conditions on the Island. FHRC feels a profound responsibility to support and empower Cuban Civil Society in its efforts to nonviolently transition to a free and democratic Cuba that has zero tolerance for violations of human rights.
