A Worthy Cause

Matt (of Matt’s Cigar Journal) is raising money for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation through this year’s Triangle Ride for Kids, and he’s asking us stogie fanatics for a little help. As a tempting incentive, he’s raffling off some great smokes:

1 box of Fuente Opus X Petit Lanceros from CigarsDirect.com
1 Box of Hoyo de Monterey Dark Sumatra Noches from Tobacconists of Cary, NC
1 Box of Perdomo Habano Corojo Robustos from Tabacalera Perdomo
1 Box of Camacho Corojo Monarcas from Camacho Cigars

The raffle is only ten dollars a throw and so far there aren’t that many contestants. Your chances of winning right now are pretty good, and your chances of making a contribution to a great cause are assured.

And to sweeten the pot a little, the most generous contributor will get a handful of my goto smokes. Just make sure to leave a comment below this post saying that you made a contribution so I can contact you when it’s through.

Go to Matt’s Ride For Kids post to enter NOW! There are only a few weeks left!

I just noticed there are a couple of tying entries right now — $100.00 is the price to beat for my free smokes. In the event of a tie, the winner will be decided by our new puppy, Chip. My wife found Chip abandoned on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Northern Arizona a few weeks ago, and he’s going to be a great dog.

If a tie breaker is necessary, two or more new tennis balls with the contestants’ names written on them will be launched simultaneously in my back yard, and the one Chip retrieves will be the winner. Now what could be more random than that?

    Thanks for the help and the donation. That is a good looking animal you have there. I bet he turns out to be a great pet. My dog is a rescued dog and I have never had such a wonderful pet which is saying a lot because the Lab I grew up with was a fantastic dog. Good luck with him.

    I hope I see some names here soon! Even if you can’t beat the $100 mark, leave your name here if you donated. Highest contributor who leaves contact info for me gets the cigars! April 25 is the deadline!

    I donated $120 to support children’s cancer research. They need much more but that is what I can give at this time. Thank you for your support also in trying to help Matt raise money for the Founation.

    I donated $150.00 today for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. My wife is a pediatric cancer nurse and she and I both are thankful for you and Brian’s efforts to raise money for a cure for childhood cancer.

    Many thanks and I enjoy the blog, especially the full bodied/strength cigar reviews.

    Again, thank you for your assistance with this fundraiser.

    I’m happy to report that Matt broke the $3000.00 goal he set for himself, and let’s hope it goes even higher in the next couple days. Thanks to everyone who contributed, and good luck to everyone in the drawing.

    Congratulations, Buck! Your “Keepers of the Flame” sampler will be on its way soon.
