December 20, 2016—Villiger Cigars showed holiday spirit as the company partnered up with The Miami Children’s Foundation for their annual Holiday toy drive. The event took place at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.
The Miami Children’s Foundation benefits the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital which is South Florida’s only licensed specialty hospital, exclusively for children with more than 650 attending physicians and over 130 pediatric sub-specialists.
Over 400 guests attended, each bringing unwrapped toys for the cause. The evening consisted of music, dancing, cocktails, and an array of Villiger Cigars. Villiger Cigars North America President Rene Castaneda hosted a Villiger Cigar Lounge, which offered perfect pairings of Villiger Cigars and rum cocktails courtesy of Zafra Rum.
Rene Castaneda, President of Villiger Cigars North America stated:” During the Holidays, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle, but we feel it important to stop and appreciate what we have, and help those who may not be as fortunate. We look forward to participating in more community initiatives.”
Villiger Cigars closed out the year strongly, by being recognized by both Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Journal as they both rated the Villiger San’Doro Colorado as part of their top 25 best cigars of the year.
