Abrazos' Annual Holiday Dinner was a GREAT Success!!

We had 65 families and over 300 people attend this fun event on December 9, 2014! This year we held it at the Rio Rancho Middle School Cafeteria which provided much more room for families to move around and visit with each other. Children enjoyed the coloring table and playing with each other. Parents told us that they really appreciated the special quiet area we set up for children who needed to take a break from the sights and sounds of the party. Many families stated that this dinner party was the first time that they had been able to go to a party, socialize with other families and stay the whole time!

Abrazos would like to share its genuine appreciation to the following businesses and individuals, whose generous sponsorships made it possible for us all to enjoy the holiday spirit and delicious food in such a great venue: Joes’ Pasta House; Aprilyn Geissler-Farmers Insurance; Bohannan Huston; Bradford H. Zeikus, Esq.; Bryce Ingalls - Infinet; Brycon Construction; CarrieTingley Hospital Foundation; Civitans International; Daniels Family Funerals; L and D Associates Consulting Group; Lanny Sigler; Larry Gaylor - Allstate Insurance Company; Latitudes - Parrot Heads of New Mexico; Lexus of Albuquerque; Nick Vuillemot; Ray Baca - New York Life Insurance; Rio Rancho Printing; Sandra McGinnis - Global copy Editing; Steward Title of Albuqerque; and VLCMTECH.COM.

Abrazos Annual Benefit Breakfast was a Success!

On Tuesday, September 16, 2014, Abrazos hosted its annual Benefit Breakfast at Club Rio Rancho. Tom Swisstack, Bernalillo Deputy County Manager, and LaDonna Hopkins, United Way of Central New Mexico retiree, co-hosted this fundraising event. Breakfast attendees received an overview of Abrazos’ programs and services through personal testimonials and a short video which highlighted the profound benefits of Abrazos’ Autism After-School Program. This event helped raise important support funds for Abrazos’ After-School Autism program while sharing with the larger community the many different ways Abrazos helps children, families and communities. For information about how you can support Abrazos’ programs and services or for information about special event sponsorship opportunities, please contact Tracy at or 404-8509.

Abrazos' Spring Fiesta was Awesome!
Rio Rancho Spring Fiesta - An Abrazos Family Support Services Event

On Saturday, May 10th we hosted second annual Abrazos’ Spring Fiesta at the Italian American Association Hall in Rio Rancho. Families enjoyed voting for their favorite piñata creatively decorated by each of the Rio Rancho Public School 3rd grade classes. Children really enjoyed the climbing wall and the horse rides as well as the petting zoo, cake walk, moon bounces (including one just for toddlers), train rides, face painting and other activities. Our Spring Fiesta helps raise awareness about Abrazos’ programs and supports the services that Abrazos provides to families. We would like to thank all those who volunteered as well as our sponsors and donors.
