The Cigar Family Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Inspired by their tremendous humanitarian needs, as well as wanting to give back to the country that produces the best cigars in the world, the Fuente and Newman families created the foundation in 2001. The Mission of The Cigar Family Charitable Foundation is to provide a significant humanitarian impact to communities in the Dominican Republic resulting in a better quality of life to those who experience a lack of education, poor access to heath care and nutrition and who have little or no sustainable employment. Their vision is to create meaningful change through education, healthcare, and the development of eco friendly business ventures providing self sufficiency to the communities they serve.

The BBMF (Big Bad Mother….you know the rest) is one of the finest and rarest accomplishments of our friend Carlito Fuente Jr. The BBMF cigar is a rare Dominican Puro in the Opus X line of Arturo Fuente, crafted by the finest torcedors in the world. An eight leaf blend with each leaf bunched individually, it is comprised of a sun grown rosada tobacco, binder, and wrapper – all harvested from Chateau de La Fuente. A handcrafted work of art by the greatest. It has an opening uppercut with the maduro wrapper. It gets stronger and bolder as the early puffs goes on. The world renowned Opus flavors appear with the spice in the Opus wrapper. The complexity of the flavor is astonishing – leather, coffee bean, and spices will rock your world as it improves with age. The BMMF is such a rare cigar that it is intimidating and warrants respect. Only 20 crafted per day, Carlito Fuente Jr and his team have offered to share this gem with us as we gather to raise money for CCI and CFCF.
