The fifth annual Smokin’ Jack was held on Thursday, November 9th, at the DoubleTree in Monrovia poolside. People gathered at tables to enjoy cocktails from the bar or tasted shots of liquors such as Jack Daniels Rye or Honey, a Maple Bourbon and some Chocolate Vodka. Guests also used the lawn area to puff on cigars from Robusto’s, while Sam Robusto himself helped out if one was uncertain on what to smoke.
The atmosphere was lively and exciting as the silent auction completed after guests bid on items such as LA Dodger branded wine, bottles of various liquors and even the opportunity to take a ride in a small plane. Later, a live auction gave folks the opportunity to get their hands on a variety of liquors, a wine fridge, a stay in a cabin in Big Bear and more. Proceeds went to local charities. An ‘arms’ length’ worth of raffle tickets could be purchased for a 50/50 drawer, with cash going to the lucky winner. The event was sponsored by the DoubleTree Hotel, Santa Anita Park and Two Men and a Truck.
