Abuelo’s Honors Veterans with Fundraiser for Honor FlightFunds Raised During Abuelo’s “Queso For Heroes” Promotion Support Honor Flight Network in Transporting Veterans to Washington, D.C.
LUBBOCK, Texas, November 7, 2019 — Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant, famous for its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, is honoring Veterans Day by partnering with Honor Flight for its “Queso for Heroes” promotion. Honor Flight is an organization which transports American veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials dedicated to honoring those who have served and sacrificed for our country. Abuelo’s will donate $1 to Honor Flight for each Chile con Queso appetizer sold from Thursday, Nov. 7 to Monday, Nov. 11, in every restaurant location.
In addition to “Queso for Heroes,” Abuelo’s in Lubbock, TX, will host Honor Flight representatives in the lobby from 10:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 11, to raise awareness about Honor Flight Network and its mission. Restaurant goers can donate $5 for a spin at the Prize Wheel for a chance to win free entrees, appetizers, desserts or queso, helping to raise additional funds for the nonprofit.
“The Honor Flight Network is grateful for the generous support of Abuelo’s through this Veterans Day promotion,” said Meredith Rosenbeck, CEO of Honor Flight. “The continuing support of our donors and sponsors, like Abuelo’s, make the Honor Flight mission of honoring all of our nation’s veterans with a trip to their memorials possible.”
Participation in an Honor Flight trip gives veterans the opportunity to reunite with other veterans for this momentous experience, to honor friends and comrades lost, and to share their stories of sacrifice. The Honor Flight Network is currently taking veterans who served in WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, and hopes to expand its service to include veterans from more recent conflicts.
