Because the Fuente and Newman families underwrite all of the administrative costs of the charity, when a donation is made – 100% of that donation goes to fund the mission of the project.
Your generosity is important and shouldn’t be taken for granted. Every cent of every dollar donated to the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation goes to our cause, delivering consistent improvement upon the lives of families in the Dominican Republic.
The community, students and faculty are provided a fun and safe environment. Enjoy our gallery of photos!
The Toast Across America, which first debuted in 2003, provides a unique opportunity for cigar retailers, customers and employees nationwide to unite for one cause while enjoying specially made cigars. Held each fall, it is the largest fundraiser for the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, using special cigar packs to raise money for children and families living in the cigar producing region of the Dominican Republic.
Each year’s Toast Pack is a unique blend made exclusively for the Toast Across America and is only available at select retailers, in limited quantities. The 2014 Toast Pack includes one Fuente Fuente Opus X and one Diamond Crown Julius Caeser rolled in a torpedo shape with a square foot.
