Dear Members,

I am writing to clarify and reaffirm our organization’s mission and affiliation to dispel any misunderstandings or misinformation that may be circulating. The Ohio Cigar Mafia is an independent and unaffiliated group, with our primary mission being the fundraising efforts for Southeastern Guide Dogs.

Our Commitment to Independence:

The Ohio Cigar Mafia operates as an autonomous entity, free from any affiliations or associations with other clubs or organizations. Our core principles center around supporting the vital cause of Southeastern Guide Dogs through dedicated fundraising initiatives and community outreach programs.

Our Singular Mission:

The sole mission of The Ohio Cigar Mafia is to raise funds for Southeastern Guide Dogs. We are deeply committed to contributing to their cause, which involves providing guide dogs, service dogs, and therapy dogs to visually impaired individuals and veterans with disabilities. Our fundraising efforts play a critical role in enabling Southeastern Guide Dogs to fulfill their mission and make a positive impact on the lives of those they serve.

Fundraising Focus:

Our focus remains on organizing effective and successful fundraising events, initiatives, and campaigns. These activities are designed to generate financial support that directly benefits Southeastern Guide Dogs and allows them to continue their exceptional work in providing life-changing services to individuals in need.

Moving Forward:

As we continue our journey towards making a meaningful difference in the lives of others, let us remain united in our dedication to our mission. Our collective efforts in fundraising and community engagement will undoubtedly contribute to enhancing the quality of life for those who rely on the services of Southeastern Guide Dogs.

Thank you for your unwavering commitment and support to our cause. Together, we will make a lasting impact and create positive change in the lives of many.
