Hello, I am writing on behalf of both our nonprofit Cigar Grotto Gives Back and Hogan, Arrowood’s resident pup and Nikki’s best buddy. Our organization is usually dedicated to serving the men and women who serve us and donating to cancer research and awareness for both men and women. This event is a bit different.
Hi, I’m DeeDee, and I’m the Bamma of Gio, Gio is in golf lessons with Nikki, our excellent golf instructor at Arrowood Golf Course. My husband and I also own Cigar Grotto, your local cigar store. So we are reaching out for Nikki’s fur baby Hogan, and hosting a Cigar Social. Hogan recently had surgery to remove his spleen, and they did not qualify for medical insurance, and his bills have gone over $10,000.00.
We would be most grateful if you would consider providing pre-made baskets for raffles, and we will also be making baskets, so we need you. We are asking for gift certificates, services, artwork, adult beverage bottles, golf items, and baskets, cash donations also accepted, nothing is too tiny, and everything is appreciated. If you are donating and a business, if you’d like, please have a 5×7 framed or laminated description of what you do and any promotional items you may want to show off.
Please contact me at to support our efforts and get Hogans’s bills paid. You may also contribute by dropping off or mailing any items to
