Annual Birthday Party Fundraiser May 4, 2009

So, every year I host a big birthday bash with cigars, raffles, auctions, etc... to help raise money for my old high school. It's a small town public school that's funded by a very limited education budget financed by generous taxpayers on fixed incomes. This past year has been incredibly challenging for them to maintain programs, and even provide adequate resources like computers. They were only able to do so because of the funding my event generates.

The Killingly High School "Learning for Life" Fund directly supports the "Career Pathways" program and "School to Career" program that helps in the transition from high school to the next step in these young peoples' lives, whether further education or directly into a trade.

This is my FIFTH one of these!!! We started in 2005 raising $2,500, then about $5,000 in 2006, $8,000 in 2007 and last year just $32,500 thanks to the support of many manufacturers' and many guests' generous donations and participation.
This year's event is Monday May 4 at the Carnegie Club (Located at 156 W. 56th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues in Manhattan). Last year we had about 120 cigar smokers there, and it really was fabulous. Festivities begin at 6:00pmThere'll be raffles, auctions, great smokes and great company!!! There is no admission price however generous donations are requested!!!

Please feel free to pass along this invitation to any of your generous cigar smoking friends. It's a wonderful opportunity to have a really great time, and do something special for kids at the same time!!!
