The Arturo Fuente and J.C. Newman families are auctioning off dozens of highly prized cigars
to raise money for their foundation, the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, which donates proceeds to impoverished children living in the Dominican Republic, where the lauded cigars are produced. The foundation has already raised over $3 million for needy kids.
The auction will go on for another several days, though cigar connoisseurs are already in a bidding war over a selection of OpusX cigars from Carlos Fuente Jr.'s personal collection. With three days left before this particular auction's end, 37 eager bidders have notched the price to $6,500.
