Smokin Tabacco has announced its third annual Smokin Tabacco Cigar Family Charitable Foundation fundraiser raffle.

The raffle was started in 2021 as a part of Smokin’ Tabacco’s one-year anniversary celebration. In 2022, the Fundraiser raised $51,000, topping the $7,000.00 raised the year before. The concept involves purchasing a raffle ticket that will be used for prizes donated by people in the cigar industry. The fundraiser begins on March 17th, 2023 at 9 AM ET and runs until April 26th at 5 PM ET.

The website for the raffle can be found at or by texting SMKTAB to 855-202-2100. For questions about the fundraiser, email Matt at or call us at 978-886-1574.

The Cigar Family Charitable Foundation (sometimes referred to as CF-CF) began in 2001 when long-time cigar industry business partners, the Fuente and Newman families formalized the dream of improving people’s lives in the mountainous Bonao region of the Dominican Republic. This includes providing education, medical services, and clean water. By focusing on families, they hoped to give the children in this cigar-producing region an opportunity for a better future. The administrative costs for the Foundation are covered by the Fuente and Newman families, meaning all fundraising efforts go directly into the Cigar Family Center.

Last year, this author visited the Cigar Family Center during the Procigar 2022 Festival.
