The Cigar Week Wrap is a one stop place to catch up on the activity here at Cigar Coop. It is a combination of our news reports, cigar reviews, and assessment updates we do throughout the week. We will throw in a few bonus items from time to time as well. Our intent is to publish once a week on Saturday mornings. Note: We have decided to label our posts as “Volume 2” to be consistent with the monthly “Editor’s Corner”.

Avo Uvezian

Avo Uvezian, the man behind Avo Cigars was involved in a serious automobile accident.  While it appears Avo will be fine, it also appears he will have a long recovery.  Jeff Borysiewicz, President of Corona Cigar Company and someone who is close with Avo posted the following message on his Facebook account:

Our dear friend Avo got in a pretty bad car accident last night. With the grace of God, it looks like he will be OK. However, Avo’s recovery could take some time. I know it would mean a lot to him if we surprised him with a huge delivery of “Get well soon” cards and cheer him on his way to back to health. Please pass this info on and mail cards to Avo Uvezian, 7792 W Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, Fl 32819. We will hand deliver them to him every day until he makes a full recovery. Thank you everyone for help.
