Further proving that the cigar community is one of the most giving communities in the world, Miami Cigar announced today a fundraiser to raise $5,000 to the Dade County Love Fund in response to Roger Castillo and Amanda Haworth being killed while serving an arrest warrant in Liberty City last week. These two officers made the ultimate sacrifice in there commitment to serve & protect and it is important that we do no forget them and other police officers wounded and fallen in the line of duty.
According to Jason Wood, Maketing Manager for Miami Cigar & Company, “The Mirandas were very moved by the funeral service for the two slain Police Officers. They are very aware of the recent increase in violence against Police Officers.” The Mirandas learned about The Love Fund yesterday, and asked Wood and MC&C Vice President Rene J. Cataneda to organize this event immediately.
The event will take place on Friday, February 4th at the following Miami stores:
- Cuban Crafters (3604 NW 7th Street);
- Puros Fine Cigars (10792 SW 24 Street);
- Havana Cuba Cigar Lounge (15348 NW 79 Court);
- Vilar Cigars (13989 South Dixie Highway);
- Cigar 1 Lounge, formerly Stogies of London Square (12305 SW 137 ave, ste 306).
The listed stores will be selling cigars donated by Marianna & Nestor Miranda and each shop will have 10 boxes with an actual retail value of $136 each. The cigars will be sold for $5/each ; $100/box and EVERY DOLLAR will go to the Love Fun.
