It's was Bud's Tire Pros night at CBU (California Baptist University) on Saturday night! What a great night of family fun and entertainment. While spending some quality time with family and friends, we watched a great game of CBU basketball, all courtesy of Bud's Tire & Wheel Tire Pros. CBU played Notre Dame De Namur. This was at the new CBU (5000+ seat) Regional Arena. CBU is also being moved up to NCAA1 this year.
Bud set up as many members and friends that his customers could bring! Each time they registered they received five tickets to the game at no cost. In addition to the free tickets, if they stopped by Bud's Tire Pros booth and entered for a chance to win a new set of tires for their vehicle during the halftime show, Bud also gave them 50% off on their next oil change.
During the game's halftime, the Riverside Police and Fire departments played a five minute Boots vs. Badges exhibition game and the winner received a $500 gift certificate from Bud's Tire & Wheel Tire Pros (Bud ended up paying both teams). Throughout the night, Bud sponsored a Bud’s Tire Pros tire roll (winner and loser won free Oil changes). Bud also sponsored a half court shot to win Continental tires. Bud also acknowledged two CBU Alumni Vets who served our country.
Over 500 of Bud’s customers took advantage of the generosity that Bud provided.
Nobody Beat Buds. BETTER CHOICES. BETTER PRICES. BETTER SERVICE.
