Project ROMP volunteers prep for party, La Fiesta to donate proceeds
BY MIKE CAVALIERE | ASSOCIATE EDITOR
To assist in the group’s efforts to renovate the Magical Forest Rainbow Park playground on Nova Road, the restaurant has agreed to donate 10% of all of its proceeds 11:30 a.m. to close Wednesday, Oct. 3, to Project ROMP. All patrons have to do is present either a ROMP logo, or last week’s edition of the Observer, which featured a story about the Project on its front page.
This Friday, however, the park-renovation group will host a Magical Knight for Project ROMP dance party, for grades kindergarten to five, 6 p.m. at the Nova Community Center, 440 N Nova Road.
Tickets are $7 and include a hot dog and drink.
There will be games, prizes and a disk jockey. Children are encouraged to wear costumes, tiaras, knight helmets or formal dress.
Fundraising Coordinator Marianne Burley, who has been hand-making the event’s crafts, says she is using recycled paint from the dump, as well as cardboard boxes, to build castles and other decorations.
