What is Smoketoberfest?
Smoketoberfest began in 1997 as a way for Jan to throw a birthday party for herself and invite her customers. Always looking for a chance to help others, Jan decided that her birthday party would double as a fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank. Smoketoberfest was an annual tradition for four years and raised more than $11,000 for the food bank, as well as barrels of food, diapers, shampoo and other toiletries.
Jan and Cascade Cigar have long history of supporting both active troops and veterans. Cascade Cigar has been a regular supporter of the Wounded Warriors Quad State Herf in New York State, the Northwest Veterans Motorcycle Club: Evergreen Chapter, the Veterans Motorcycle Club and the Golfing for the Guard Golf Tournament, among others.
Cascade Cigar has also been collecting and sending free cigars to troops serving in war zones since 2002, after a soldier serving overseas contacted Jan to purchase cigars. She immediately decided that she could never sell cigars to a soldier serving in a war zone. Instead, she began soliciting cigar donations from her customers. Over the years, Cascade Cigar has sent more than 10,000 cigars to troops overseas, with most shipments containing at least 1,000 for soldiers to share.
