Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
Rain City Cigar of Seattle is remembering September 11 this year by celebrating America and honoring her troops overseas with - what else - premium cigars.
"Along with many cigar stores and manufacturers of cigars - members of the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) - we have donated premium cigars to our troops overseas in the past. This year, we have joined with CAO International to remember and celebrate the selfless acts of heroism exhibited by thousands of Americans on September 11, 2001," said Kirsten Wolfe, store manager.
Between now and September 11, Rain City is joining with premium cigar manufacturer CAO International and will be taking donations of cigars for the troops. Although they will accept all cigars donated for the troops, for every CAO cigar donated by Rain City customers, CAO International will match it.
To help commemorate the event, CAO's West Coast representative Ed Trevino will be at the store from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on September 11 to discuss the program and raffle off incentives and premiums to encourage donations.
Active duty military personnel in uniform will receive an additional free cigar.
"We usually have a promotion every three weeks or so. When the September promotion came along and happened to fall on the 11th, we decided to focus on celebrating America's best and a remembrance of our troops," Wolfe said.
Rain City Cigar is located in historic Georgetown off I-5 at Exit 162, on the corner of Corson and Michigan at 5963 Corson Ave.
