A local band of cigar aficionados has made a sizable donation to a local food bank to help with the needs of food-insecure families throughout Ross and its surrounding counties.
The Cigar Band Inc. made a $5,000 donation to the Good Sam Food Bank on Thursday, July 12th.

Funds for the donation were raised during the group's 7th annual Swine & Stogies event, which took place on Friday, May 18th. The event is held each year to benefit the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.
Since its inception, the Swine & Stogies event has helped The Cigar Band Inc. raise more than $15,000 for Good Sam. Those donations have provided many meals to Central Ohio families.
