Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sales of Pledge Prequel Cigars Have Helped Fund Autism Awareness

With less than a week left in the campaign, E.P. Carrillo Cigars has announced that they have already raised $55,000 this year to raise autism awareness. As a part of the Carrillo Cares initiative, the esteemed cigar maker has been donating $9.80 for every Pledge Prequel (5″x50 Robusto) box sold during the month of April, which is World Autism Month. As the month winds down, they want to encourage everyone to continue supporting this cause and purchase Pledge Prequel boxes until the end of the month.

In addition to our fundraising efforts, we have been hosting Pledge98 events nationwide, engaging with communities and raising awareness about autism. Our team has also been participating in Els for Autism golf tournaments and other local gatherings, uniting people in support of this vital cause.

With two weeks remaining, EPC is eager to continue their efforts and make an even greater impact. They want to continue encouraging adult cigar smokers to buy and smoke Pledge Prequel and attend one of their upcoming Pledge98 events. Those who would like to get involved with the Pledge98 campaign can visit the Pledge98 website. CA
