Belén Jesuit Tómbola Cigar Lounge (Miami)

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School’s annual scholarship fundraiser has been called Tómbola — Spanish for raffle — since the Miami school’s early days in Cuba, but the event has evolved into a lot more than a simple raffle since then. For one weekend, one of the school’s small courtyards becomes the event’s cigar lounge, where moms, dads and alumni gather for stogies and spirits. This year’s event featured cigars by Padrón, C.L.E., and My Father (all companies whose owners have ties to the school) as well as Aberfeldy whisky. All told, this year’s Tómbola raised more than $675,000.
