A benefit barbecue will take place on Saturday for a Calallen High School freshman currently undergoing physical therapy.

Ebony Lopez, a freshman at CHS, is currently undergoing physical therapy in Austin for injuries she received during a car accident earlier this year.

CHS Powerlifting Coach Joel De La Paz said all proceeds will go towards helping with the family's medical bills and expenses.

"Anything the family might need. We just want to help them out,' De La Paz said. "Ebony's aunt set up this fundraiser, and we wanted to help her in any way we can. She's (Ebony) one of my powerlifters and she's a great kid."

Ebony's aunt, Veronica Castillo, said her entire family, all CHS graduates, are looking forward to helping out this weekend at the benefit.

Brisket plates with rice, beans, potato salad and trimmings will be on sale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Calallen Wildcat Stadium, located at 4205 Wildcat Drive.

The cost will be $7 per plate.
