Albuquerque International Sunport and Fresquez Concessions Host Holiday Fundraising Kick-Off Event Featuring Holly Holm – November 1, 2018
Today the Albuquerque International Sunport and Fresquez Concessions, Inc. hosted a kick-off event to raise awareness for their holiday fundraising campaign, Sunport Giving. Albuquerque native and world-renowned MMA fighter Holly Holm helped jumpstart the fundraising by signing autographs, posing for pictures, and introducing the three local charities benefiting from the campaign.
“Raising awareness and providing assistance for Albuquerque’s homeless population has always been a passion of mine,” said Lenny Fresquez, Owner of Fresquez Concessions. “Utilizing our space at the Sunport and inviting folks to meet Holly is a great way to help us reach our goal of providing more than 20,000 meals to those facing homelessness.”
The Sunport Giving campaign will run until December 14. All funds raised during the campaign will benefit SteelBridge Ministries, Pay It Forward New Mexico, and The United Way of Central New Mexico’s basic needs program. Donations can be made by texting “SUNPORTGIVING” to 243725.
“We are thrilled to be partnering in this effort with Fresquez,” said Nyika Allen, Director of Aviation for the City of Albuquerque. “Tackling homelessness is one of Mayor Keller’s top priorities, and by harnessing one of the busiest travel times of the year, we are able to raise awareness for this epidemic facing our community.”
