FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 3, 2016
Villa Park, IL – Little Smoke for Aficionados of Cigars is hosting their annual Charitable Cigar Event this coming Friday, October 7, 2016. The event will be held at 525 N Third Ave, Villa Park, IL 60181.
The Little Smoke is a charity fundraiser cigar event held each year to benefit Military and Veteran Charities. We have held this event for many years in the Chicago, IL area, and have raised nearly $100,000 for our charities during that time. The event brings together approximately 150+ regular cigar smokers to raise money for very worthwhile charities, including:
- Honor Flight Chicago
- Pizzas 4 Patriots
- Wounded Heroes Foundation
- Operation: Support Our Troops
- Cigar Rights of America
We chose these 501(c)3 charities because they are local, do excellent work, and have a very high percentage of donations that go to the veterans (low overhead). We try to give what we can to those who give so much!
We provide each attendee with a SWAG bag (cigars, cutter, matches/ lighter, and other cigar related “goodies”). In addition, we have raffle prizes, silent auction items, and live auction items, all of which include cigars. We also have very little overhead for the event itself, since we have worked hard to get donations for cigars, prizes, drinks, food and entertainment. At this upcoming event, we are anticipating a net donation of over $10,000 to our charities!
The Little Smoke Charity Event has long time supporters from the Chicagoland B&M retailers including:
- 8 to 8/ Casa de Montecristo
- Neumann’s Cigars and More
- The Cigar Lounge
- Up Down Cigars
- The Cigary
- Cigar King
- Biggs Mansion
- The Humidor
- Hyde Park Cigar Lounge
A pre-pay discount is available until Wednesday, October 5th ($40 each/ $150 for a group of 5).
You can still pay by Pay Pal (choose “Pay Pal Friends & Family” Carl.Pedersen1467@gmail.com), credit card, check or cash.
