● 1 box of 25 Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 cigars from 1984 in a wrap set box.

● The very last original release box of AF 13 cigars.

This online charity auction is being held in the CigarFamily.com Cigar Lounge Online Forum.

All proceeds from this charity auction will benefit the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation ("CFCF"), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which that serves the impoverished children and their families in the Dominican Republic's famed tobacco-growing region.

Due to the kind generosity another foundation, all donations will be matched $1.50 for every dollar donated, up to $35,000. With this matching contribution, the Fuente and Newman families expect to raise over $50,000.

About Cigar Family Charitable Foundation

In 2001, the Fuente and Newman families and their Cigar Family members established CFCF. The foundation has created a 23-acre project, which is home to primary and high schools that educate 490 students, a medical and dental clinic, a community center, sports and recreation facilities, and an organic farm and fishery. Because the Fuente and Newman families underwrite all of CFCF's administrative costs, 100% of all donations directly help those in need.
