Author and speaker Nick “Gunny Pop” Popaditch—the “Cigar Marine”—is launching a line of cigars with a portion of the proceeds going to support the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund to honor his fellow military men and women.

 In recognition of the Marine Corps Birthday, Nick will unveil his new cigar line at a special event held Nov. 10, at 6:00 p.m., at Art of Cigars (2222 Francisco Dr., Suite 470) in El Dorado Hills. The first two premium hand-rolled cigars to be released under the “Cigar Marine” line are “The Gunny” (a double-wrapped Torpedo) and “The Tanker” (a mild spiced Rum). The cigars will be designed and distributed by Art of Cigars, in cooperation with Popaditch’s publisher, Savas Beatie LLC.

 “I am excited to stand behind a product that allows cigar smokers to celebrate in true Marine Corps style, and even more so to support a great organization that helps so many injured Marines and their families,” said Nick “Gunny Pop” Popaditch. Nick’s goal is to raise one million dollars for the Semper Fi Fund. The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit set up to provide immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

Popaditch, who was partially blinded in combat during the First Battle of Fallujah in 2004 when he was struck in the head by an RPG, has been a strong supporter of the Semper Fi Fund.

The event is open to the public. Visit thecigarmarine.eventbrite.com for registration and additional information. Nick will also participate as the Grand Marshal for the City of Sacramento Veteran’s Day Parade on November 11.
