May 27, 2019 – Austin, Texas
Memorial Day offers Southern Draw Cigars another opportunity to remember and honor our brothers and sisters who have died while serving in our United States Armed Forces. Our Veteran Owned and Operated company is honored to share the IGNITE 2019 cigar releases benefitting the Navy SEAL Foundation. Once again the Southern Draw Cigars family is joining our premium cigar retailers, sponsors, industry media and supportive consumers to bring awareness and to offer financial support to services that are important to our family. Southern Draw Cigars is also proud to announce the initial launch dates of the NEW cigars as we come

together to IGNITE some good.
“We are honored to have Southern Draw Cigars supporting the
Navy SEAL Foundation with this promotion. As a company owned
and operated by veterans, their commitment to giving back
through their IGNITE program is incredible and the Navy SEAL
Foundation is thrilled to be named as one of their benefitting
charities for 2019”, Chris Irwin, Director of Partnerships at the
Navy SEAL Foundation. www.navySEALfoundation.org
The charitable giving and event schedules for IGNITE 2019 will be
led by Southern Draw Cigars family members, Harry “Phil” and
Shelly Hogan U.S. Navy Retired (the namesakes of the popular
cigar blend CEDRUS- THE HOGAN), and Daniel Peterson US
Navy Retired, SEAL Team 1 – BUD/S Class 54. “The Navy SEAL
Foundation offers many areas of support and our family has
selected two vitally important areas to focus our charitable
contributions. 1)Warrior Transition – transition from active duty
service into civilian life and 2)Warrior and Family Support – providing strength, resiliency and
peace of mind via family support programs,” stated Shelly Hogan.

IGNITE 2019 will include a total of 50,000 cigars packaged in 5,000 black enamel humi-jars with radiant gold lettering, offering six NEW cigar offerings throughout 2019. Each release will offer a single blend and a single size cigar packaged in the newly designed IGNITE 2019 humi-
jars and a small amount of 10 count bundles. All IGNITE cigars are perfectly protected by Boveda’s patented 2-way humidity control and a freshness seal, each donated by IGNITE sponsor www.bovedainc.com. Each purchase of IGNITE 2019 humi-jar will result in a charitable contribution of 12.5% of the cost to the Navy SEAL Foundation only possible as each
valued retail partner jointly contributes to the selected charity.
