July 12, 2013 (Tampa, Fla.) — Retailers nationwide will participate in the 11th annual Toast Across America this fall benefitting the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation (CFCF). As the largest fundraiser for the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, the Toast Across America uses the sale of special Toast packs to raise money for children and families living in the cigar producing region of the Dominican Republic.

The 2013 pack will feature one Arturo Fuente Destino al Siglo Anniversario and one Diamond Crown Black Diamond rolled in a 6 1⁄2” x 52 torpedo. These cigars are made specifically for the Toast Across America and are only available at select retailers, in limited quantities. Events and in-store sales run from Sept. 1 to Jan. 31.

Toast packet sales have raised over $2.5 million to date; and thanks to the Fuente and Newman families, 100% of the donations go directly to healthcare, empowerment and education-based projects. To find a participating retailer near you or to sign up your shop, please go to www.cf- cf.org.
