The 20th Anniversary Cigar Smoker will be held Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at the Fort Worth Club. This prestigious event is the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation’s biggest fundraiser and one of the most anticipated social events of the year. Proceeds from the annual Cigar Smoker provide the funds to enhance programs focused on literacy and learning for Fort Worth children, families, and adults.
In 1901, at the suggestion of Andrew Carnegie, a group of Fort Worth ladies asked local gentlemen to donate “the price of a good cigar” to help raise money to build a local library and bring literature to Cowtown. To honor our history and to further promote literacy in our city, the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation hosts the Annual Cigar Smoker at the Fort Worth Club.
This signature event is unlike any other in Fort Worth. Premium cigars, seated dinner, fine wines and spirits, entertainment and silent and live auctions are the hallmarks of this remarkable evening. The success of the annual Cigar Smoker has been significant in allowing the Foundation to continue its work of enhancing library services in partnership with the City of Fort Worth.

What is Anointed 4 Business?
Anointed For Business is an edgy, relevant, cutting-edge faith-based business conference created and hosted by Delatorro McNeal, II. It’s a 3-Day Marketplace Ministry Impartation Experience designed to create an empowering, motivating, thought-provoking, action-orientated and collaborative environment where Christian business owners and entrepreneurs from across the country can come together and support one another as they uncover the depths of their anointing for the marketplace that exists outside of the walls of a church building.
What Information You’ll Get
The goal of Anointed 4 Business is to teach attendees exactly how to get crystal clear about their God assignment, learn relevant and result-oriented strategies for monetizing their God assignment in the marketplace and instill evangelical tools within the attendees that equip them to be most effective with their marketplace anointing.
Who Anointed 4 Business is Perfect For
Anointed 4 Business is for High-Achieving Christians who are tired of “church as usual” and are ready for RADICAL TRANSFORMATION. Anointed 4 Business is for any and all business-minded, goal-oriented, and mission-driven saints who want nothing less than God’s best for their lives and careers. Anointed 4 Business is for marketplace believers who believe in personal growth and professional development outside the 4 walls of the traditional church structure.
