Cigar Night

One Mission




The 8th Annual Cigar Night

Year 8 has been a year of positive change and transition for The Aubrey Foundation. While we continue to be committed to serving the North Brunswick Township community and local students, our #TAFFamily is also going through some wonderful life changes which we are thankful for.  FIVE of our board members will be welcoming new babies into the world within the next few weeks, others have moved out of state, and some have taken on new roles in their professional careers. We celebrate these beautiful new beginnings by recognizing that it means restructuring our calendar within The Aubrey Foundation. We continue to honor Aubrey every day by staying committed to our mission here within the Foundation while also staying committed to our families and lives at home. 

For the past seven years, Cigar Night has been co-hosted by The Aubrey Foundation and The Anthony A. Raspa Memorial Foundation.  Aubrey & Anthony were cousins who passed away within months of each other.  Both foundations were created in their memory to serve our local communities in unique ways that mirror the lives they led.  Cigar Night has provided us a space to feel Aubrey & Anthony’s presence in a very special way – by bringing old friends and new ones together – enjoying things they both loved such as music, dancing, great food, hand rolled cigars, the forever famous “Pappas Sangria”, lawn games, and most importantly time with family and friends. 

While this wonderful fundraiser will always be near and dear to our hearts, The Aubrey Foundation has made the decision to scale back regarding the number of events we host and will not be co-hosting Cigar Night. Rather, we will focus solely on The Purple for Pappas 5K race as our main fundraiser of the year.  That said, we are so grateful that members of The Anthony A. Raspa Memorial Foundation will continue to host this wonderful fundraiser moving forward.

This year’s Cigar Night will be held on Sunday, June 26th from 4:30 – 9:30pm at The Brown Stone in Metuchen.  To purchase tickets or make a donation please click on the green “Tickets” button on the Eventbrite page. 

Members of The Aubrey Foundation look forward to attending the event this year and we hope to see you there! Thank you for your continued love and support.
