Montecristo Relief Organization brings smiles to scores of children

The Montecristo Relief Organization was established in 1998 by Altadis U.S.A. after several devastating hurricanes swept through the Caribbean killing thousands of people, injuring millions and causing unimaginable suffering. Since its inception, the Montecristo Relief Organization has donated millions of dollars to build homes, schools, medical facilities and provide scholarships and economic opportunities to victims of natural disasters.

Each year, Altadis U.S.A. and its retailers sponsor exciting in-store events to benefit the Montecristo Relief Organization. This fall, tobacconists across America are hosting Operation Hope – a spectacular celebration of cigars, camaraderie and caring to raise funds for the Relief Organization. Cigar lovers won’t want to miss this memorable event filled with fun and good cheer. In return for a $75 donation, attendees receive a fabulous gift package of Montecristo cigars and accessories valued at over $125 and share in the good feeling of giving something back to those is desperate need. The date and details of the event can be obtained through local tobacconists or by visiting montecristooperationhope.com.
