Cigar Rights of America Announces 2016 Sampler
Today, Cigar Rights of America announced that all of the proceeds generated through the sale of its 2016 ten-pack sampler, during the upcoming International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Trade Show, will be dedicated to a Legal Defense Fund, committed to advancing the recently filed lawsuit against the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
The ten cigar sampler includes cigars from the Arturo Fuente Cigar Co., Ashton Distributors, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars, Tatuaje, J.C. Newman Cigar Co., Alec Bradley, Ernesto Carrillo, Quesada, La Flor Dominicana, and Davidoff.
Only 3,000 of the sampler will be available, and the CRA Sampler has sold-out each year since its launch as an annual fundraising project in 2009.
CRA Executive Director Glynn Loope stated, “This litigation is going to be an expensive proposition for the industry as a whole, and by dedicating the proceeds from the 2016 sampler sold during next week’s IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas, is a unique means for this partnership between the retail tobacconist, manufacturer and consumer, to assist with raising resoruces necessary to advance this lawsuit against the worst of all possible regulatory measures by the FDA.“
Orders will be taken at the Cigar Rights of America booth #3953 in the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas, July 25-28.
