RAM Rodeo Series in Albuquerque!

*** Information from Amanda G. ***

The Ram Rodeo Series will be making a stop at Tingley Coliseum on San Pedro Drive NE from Wednesday, September 10th until Sunday, September 21stto bring entertainment for the whole family to enjoy at the New Mexico State Fair Rodeo beginning at  7:00 pm each evening.

Rodeos remain a heavy influence on American culture and the Ram Rodeo Series helps to make this community event possible so those with a passion for rodeo are able to compete year after year.

While at the rodeo, attendees should visit the Ram Truck brand space to:
  • Enter the 2014 Ram Rodeo Sweepstakes for a chance to win $45,000 toward any eligible Chrysler Group vehicle; earlier this year one lucky rodeo fan was randomly selected as the 2013 winner and took home a brand new Ram 2500 by simply entering at a local Ram Rodeo Series event
  • Check out the 2014 lineup of Ram pickup trucks thanks to your local Ram Truck brand dealerships

FREE Subs for H20: Firehouse Subs H2O for Heroes Program Aids Local Fire Departments

*** Information subbmitted by Brittany M. - thank you ***


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Firehouse Subs is hosting its first annual H20 for Heroes program on Saturday, Aug. 2, at all Albuquerque restaurant locations. To cut the heat and sub cravings, the restaurant invites the community to donate one case of bottled water in exchange for one FREE medium sub*. The bottled water collected will be distributed to local fire departments through the H20 for Heroes program. As New Mexico is experiencing a fourth consecutive drought with 86 percent of the state in severe to exceptional drought conditions, water is considered a life-saving tool**. 
While this initiative represents the efforts of a local owner, the Firehouse Subs brand is familiar with giving back. Since 2005, the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation® has donated more than $23,964 worth of resources to first responders and public safety organizations in Albuquerque and $10.1 million nationwide. Past H20 for Heroes programs in the state of Arizona alone have raised more than 2,000 cases of water through this one-day event. 

Albuquerque restaurants participating in H20 for Heroes include:
  • Academy, 8050 Academy Rd. 
  • Cottonwood, 3707 Ellison Dr. NW
  • Montgomery Plaza, 4411 San Mateo Blvd, NE
