A group of Bellevue firefighters will experience a new kind of rush this weekend, as they step out of their gear and into the role of restaurant server and host.
On Sunday, September 12, the firefighters will join the staff at Z’Tejas in Bellevue to raise money for the Bellevue Firefighters Community Support Foundation (BFCSF), a non-profit organization that helps support firefighters and others in our community, primarily children and families.
The proceeds raised at the special event from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Sunday, will be directly donated to John Fox, a Bellevue officer who is currently fighting an on-going battle with cancer.
The event is part of the month-long festivities being held by the restaurant as homage to the famous Hatch, New Mexico Chile Festival, which has been in existence for 35 years. The celebration continues through through September 26 with Z’Tejas offering a special menu, available during Sunday’s event.
