In partnership with Epic Cigars, Nat Cicco saw the impact of Ripken Foundation’s work and offered their support as well.

“Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. is doing vital work for young people in need across the country and when Epic was looking for partners in the non-profit space the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation felt like the perfect fit and the relationship continues to blossom”, said Dean Parsons in a press release.

“We’re extremely proud of the work the Ripken Foundation has accomplished throughout the years and look forward to our joint collaboration,” said Arthur Berberian, president at Zander-Greg, Inc. “Cal’s vision and the values set forth through his foundation motivated us to partner our Nat Cicco and EPIC cigar brands with his team. We look forward to assist the foundation in advancing their benevolence.”
