Beginning tomorrow, cigar lovers will again be able to make a direct impact while enjoying one of their favorite cigars. Earlier in the year, through their charitable Carrillo Cares program, cigar heads helped contribute over $46,000 to Els For Autism. Referencing the Pledge’s rating of 98 when it was named 2020’s cigar of the year, $0.98 from every 5 x 50 Pledge sold went to the cause during the first campaign. This time around, $9.80 of every single box of Pledge cigars sold between April 1, 2023 and April 30, 2023 will be contributed to the foundation.
The Foundation aims to offer the most up-to-date, evidence-based programs. Education, Research, Global Support, Recreation Services, Adult Services and Therapy Services are the primary areas of the Foundation’s focus.
