E.P. Carrillo Cigars is excited to announce The Pledge98 campaign, benefitting Els for Autism, has earned nearly $14,700 since beginning April 1st, 2024. The campaign, which ran from April 1 – April 30, was designed to raise awareness and funds for the non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of people with autism, and those who care for them through lifetime services and collaborative partnerships.

In the spirit of the Pledge Prequel earning a 98 rating when it was selected as the Cigar of the Year in 2020, E.P. Carrillo donated $9.80 of every Pledge Prequel (5×50) box sold between April 1st – April 30th as part of the Carrillo Cares initiative. Since the inception of E.P. Carrillo’s Carrillo Cares, the company has raised over $100,000 in cash and in-kind sponsorships for charities. 

“It is humbling to see our consumers and retailers rally behind such a great cause,” said Lissette Perez-Carrillo, Co-Owner of E.P. Carrillo Cigar Company. 

The Pledge98 campaign is led by Skye McPhillips and is part of the Carrillo Cares initiative. E.P. Carrillo has expanded its involvement with Els for Autism as part of this initiative and will also explore other non-profit organizations in the future.
