Montecristo Named Exclusive Cigar Sponsor of Yogi Berra Golf Tournament
Altadis U.S.A. has announced that its flagship Montecristo cigars brand will be the official cigar sponsor of the Yogi Berra Museum Celebrity Golf Tournament. Montecristo Classic and Montecristo White will be the featured cigars. The tournament will be held on June 9th at The Montclair Country Club in West Orange, NJ.
Handmade with ultra-premium tobaccos carefully selected and aged over a period of years, Montecristo Classic is perhaps the ultimate Montecristo. It is a medium bodied smoke of intricate complexities. Montecristo White is crafted with a hand-selected Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper. It is luxuriously rich, smooth and well-rounded.
The star-studded tournament will include many past New York Yankee greats including Graig Nettles, Ron Guidry and Bill Skowran as well as former NFL and NHL players. Non-sports celebrities attending include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Radio station WFAN's "Mike and the Mad Dog" will broadcast the event live on their #1 rated call-in sports show. Inspired by Yogi Berra's commitment to children, the tournament raises money for the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center, which offers culturally diverse educational programming designed to stimulate students' interest in sports and its relationship to academic endeavors.
