Contest winner gets barbecue feast

October 6, 2017
Friends and family of U.S. Navy veteran Ricky Lopez enjoyed the "Ultimate Backyard BBQ" Sept. 16 at his Burbank home, thanks to Real Urban Barbecue, which served a mouthwatering BBQ menu, and to the Chicago Blackhawks, who sent ambassador Jamal Mayers to mingle with guests. 
Lopez served in the U.S. Navy for 10½ years before he was sent home on medical disability after getting injured in Iraq. 
Lopez’s friend, Natalia Vinasco, nominated him to receive the feast. 
Her winning social media submission: "I nominate Ricky Lopez because he is the most honorable, courageous, patriotic, noble, loyal, hero, father, son, husband and person." 
The barbecue contest is held in conjunction with the CATA’s Barbecue for the Troops campaign in July.
