Cars & Cigars Smoke Detroit was founded in 2014 by Tom Celani and Dario Bergamo after a visit to the Fuente’s Cigar Family School in the Dominican Republic. Benefiting the Celani Family Foundation and the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation,* this event brings together cars, Fuente cigars, Celani Family Vineyards wines, and a live auction for a festive night of fundraising.
The proceeds from the event directly benefit children of the Cigar Family School in the Dominican Republic and underprivileged families and children through local Detroit charities, Gleaners Community Food Bank and Capuchin Soup Kitchen.
