History
The Cigar Dinner was born 25 years ago, primarily through the efforts of Mark Mandeville and Tony Heckenkemper, whose combined goal was to provide an event for the men of our community to gather and to raise funds for the Christ the King Education Endowment Fund. From its humble beginnings in a small tent on the east side of the Christ the King gymnasium, the Cigar Dinner quickly became an annual favorite and graduated to a much larger multi-tent affair on the west side of the old Early Childhood Development Center. After a multi-year run in this location, the Cigar Dinner was then moved to its present location in the Rucker Warehouse. Over its history, the Cigar Dinner has annually brought several hundred men, both from within and from outside the Christ the King community, together in a fun, albeit somewhat smoky atmosphere. In addition to the fun and the many stories for those who have attended regularly, the Cigar Dinner has raised well in excess of $400,000 for the CTK Education Endowment Fund. It has been a success from both a community and financial standpoint and it is hoped that it will continue for years to come.
