Lubbock, TX (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
Abuelo’s Mexican restaurants are helping to put the veteran back in Veterans Day this year by hosting a weekend-long “Queso for Heroes” fundraiser benefitting Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP). Abuelo’s will donate $1 for every Chile con Queso appetizer that is sold during the Veterans Day weekend, Friday, November 11 through Sunday, November 13, to Wounded Warrior Project as part of its Believe in Heroes™ program.
Believe in Heroes is a Wounded Warrior Project initiative that calls on Americans to recognize the enormous sacrifices made by our newest generation of veterans and to honor the service of these individuals over a two-month campaign leading up to Veterans Day.
“We are excited and honored to help support our Veterans by holding this fundraising event to benefit Wound Warriors Project, “ said Robert Lin, president of Food Concepts International, Abuelo’s parent company. “We hope everyone will come out over the Veterans Day weekend to help honor and support our Veterans for the service and sacrifices they have made for our country.”
Abuelo’s has 40 restaurants located in 15 states nationwide. For more information about Abuelo’s Veterans Day Queso for Heroes fundraiser, please visit http://www.abuelos.com or contact your local Abuelo’s restaurant.
