The JENNiRADIO team will be on hand at the Dino Maize Maze at Rio Grande Community Farm this Saturday, October 15th, from 12 noon to 4pm. We’ll be playing music, giving away prizes, and also selling raffle tickets to benefit Albuquerque Little Theatre.

Enjoy the maze, petting zoo, pumpkin patch and more. This year, the Rio Grande Community Farm has partnered with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science on the dinosaur theme for the maze. Come explore a 7-acre corn maze, follow dinosaur tracks, dig for bones, and even play with dino eggs. And while you’re there, come say “Hi!” to Jennifer and request a song.

The maze is a fundraiser for Rio Grande Community Farm. Proceeds fund special programs that support education, wildlife and our community. For more information and to buy tickets in advance, visit their web site here.


Join the JENNiRADIO team at Griegos Elementary School for their crazy hair day fundraiser and Jog-a-Thon this Friday, October 14th, from 8-10am. This is their only fundraiser of the year, so let’s make it count!

I’m so excited to be in Albuquerque for my very first Balloon Fiesta! I’ve heard it’s a magical time here, and I just can’t wait. While you’re visiting Balloon Fiesta, I hope you will come to the Balloon Museum’s Lighter Than Air Fair. I’ll be there with the AM 1240 JENNiRADIO team all nine days, playing music, giving away prizes, and meeting listeners like YOU!

We’ll also be selling raffle tickets to benefit the Albuquerque Little Theatre. We’re helping them raise money for a new stage floor, and your entry could win one of many prizes, including an iPad 2, iPhone and more!

The Lighter Than Air Fair at the Balloon Museum features all kinds of fun for all ages, from 6am – 2pm each day, October 1st through 9th. Admission is free. If you have a combo ticket to the Balloon Fiesta and the Balloon Museum, make sure you scan it at the museum, to be entered for additional prizes.
