Sons of RABALAC, a Florida based not-for-profit organization focusing on the betterment and development of Kingston, Jamaica’s, Calabar High School, is gearing up for their 4th Annual Green & Black Celebration on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at KARU Night Club located at 1000 State RD 84 Ft. Lauderdale, FL  from 10 PM to 5 AM. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Calabar High School for the food program, soccer program, the quiz team, various books drives and, academic scholarships.

‘Green & Black’ will feature entertainers representing various schools from Jamaica such as, St. Georges College, Ocho Rios HS, and Jamaica College. They’re all coming together in South Florida for one common goal, supporting Calabar High School. This year’s featured sounds are  99Jamz’s Waggy Tee, Supa Sound, Firm Music, and Jazzy T from Renaissance Sound.

Sons of Rabalac has been devoted to combining Dancehall & Reggae nightlife for a worthy cause over the years. As the host venue for ‘Green & Black’, KARU Night Club has been able to provide an exceptional experience for the community to come out and party with a purpose. This year the owners of KARU are making a contribution of an undisclosed amount to the organization. “As a business owner that’s deeply affiliated with the Caribbean community, it made sense to support a cause that goes directly back to Jamaica. I’ve seen Sons of RABALAC come year after year and put together an amazing event for the youth at Calabar HIgh School and we want to give back too,” said Jay de la Cruz, owner of KARU Night Club.

The organization will continue to lend a hand to Calabar High School through unlimited endeavors and the tremendous support of the South Florida community, and those abroad. “Our aim is to develop and train leaders for the future. We can attain this through togetherness and our motto ‘The Utmost for the Highest’. We believe everyone’s involvement is necessary. We are nothing without the people within the diaspora. They’re the reason why Green & Black has been able to come to this point,” said Ralston Phillips, spokesperson for Sons of RABALAC.
