The Origin of “ROSCON” came from “ROS” for Rosario and “CON” for Conrado. Initially it was a Family Foundation started in 1993 named after the parents of one of the founders, Carolina Cruz Cuison-Smith. But in 2002 it was incorporated and converted into a 501(C)3 Non-Profit organization. By 2007, it has graduated 11 college students from the Tarlac University and conducted art shows, seminars and bazaars at its Dallas Office. By 2008, it was classified as a public charity organization under section 170(B) of Non-Profit Regulation of the Federal Government. In 2012, it launched its first Festival Tour Event in Luzon, focusing on the Aeta tribes in San Jose, Tarlac, an indigenous tribe in Luzon with such a rich culture that delegates were fascinated with its traditions and villages. In 2014, the Festival Tour brought delegates to Cebu. 2016 & 2017 saw more Festival Tours in Luzon and it was apparent at this time that the City of Tarlac has formed a strong bond with the Foundation of Texas.
Roscon Foundation has also formed a strong alliance with one of its Tarlac directors, Lanie Valencia, who opened the doors of a resort at Virgen De Los Remedios in Bamban, Tarlac, so foreign delegates can find recluse during the festival tours to relax and enjoy the ambience of the beautiful resort. It’s called “Bale-Balayan” which means “Playhouse”.
