Famous Smoke Shop & Southern Draw Cigars 'Ignite Some Good' for Charity
New Cigar Release Program will "Provide hope, morale, and charity to those in need."
EASTON, Pa., April 30, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Famous Smoke Shop, the nation’s #1 discount retailer of premium cigars online, has become a founding partner in Southern Draw Cigars' new IGNITE project, a collaborative mission that combines the release of the new Rose of Sharon Perfecto cigars with an innovative charitable donation program. The official IGNITE Rose of Sharon release event will take place on Saturday, May 12th, 2018 at Leaf Cigar Bar & Restaurant located on the Famous Smoke Shop premises at 90 Mort Drive, Easton, PA 18040. Additionally, the new release will be available for purchase either online or in-store during the May 12 event.
The 6" x 56 perfectos have their own custom IGNITE bands and are presented in two custom, limited edition Famous humi-jars of 10 cigars each. Offered in both black and white versions, only 250 jars in each color will be available for sale. Both jars display the words "IGNITE SOME GOOD" along with a sticker on the top representing the designated charity; for the Rose of Sharon Perfecto, Famous Smoke Shop has chosen Cigars For Warriors. Inside each jar is an informational brochure and a humidity packet supplied by Boveda, Inc. who is also a partner in the project. Moreover, Famous allowed their exclusive jars to be used for all of the new IGNITE project releases.
The IGNITE program is a creative way for Southern Draw Cigars to dedicate new release premium cigars to provide hope, morale, and charity to those in need. Both Southern Draw and its partners have voluntarily agreed to support mutually agreed-upon charities and causes. According to Southern Draw Cigars founders, Robert and Sharon Holt, the primary focus of IGNITE will be serving active-duty, deployed, and veteran military personnel and their families, plus the needy, homeless, and hungry, many of whom are military veterans, as well as premium cigar rights and retail associations.
"Robert, who is also a U.S. Armed Forces veteran, approached us about the Ignite project and we instantly wanted to be a part of it; not only in participating in one of the releases, but also in providing our exclusive humi-jars for use across all of the releases," said Jim Charnley, Director of Purchasing and Merchandising. "When Robert offered us the Rose of Sharon perfecto for our first release, we immediately said yes!"
