The Fort Worth Public Library Foundation

The Cigar Smoker

May 5, 2021

As unique as Fort Worth itself!

A signature event for the past 24 years, The Cigar Smoker showcases premium cigars, fine wines and spirits, three-course dinner, silent and live auctions, tastings from local distilleries, a Cuban cigar roller, and much more.

This year’s Gala was held in dedication to the life and memory of Will A. Courtney, Sr.


Fort Worth came out ready to have a great time! This year’s highlights included music by one of the Library’s Amplify817 artists, a Cuban cigar roller, an interactive selfie mirror, and samplings by Acre Distilling.

Together with the generous support of our sponsors, underwriters, and event partners, the Smoker raised $170,000.
