Rico Barrientos can be recognized as the face of Papa Rico’s spaghetti sauce. His wife, Donna, started the company one year ago.

“Last year, the Wheels of Courage group invited me to sell our Papa Rico’s spaghetti sauce during the Thursday night car shows. I felt it was a great group of people and cause to support,” said Barrientos. “I really like what Wheels of Courage does for those who are in need of help. During the Thursday night car shows, we donate a portion of our sales to the event.”

Barrientos and his wife have been married for 14 years. Together, they have four children, one grandson and two Labradoodles. In his free time, Barrientos enjoys attending car shows, fishing, and Husker football. He also enjoys cooking for his friends and family.

“I feel blessed that the Wheels of Courage group has invited me into their circle,” he said. “This is such an amazing group of people and organization.”

The fifth annual Wheels of Courage takes place at Quaker Steak and Lube on June 22. Funds raised during the event will benefit the Jennie Edmundson Foundation Spirit of Courage Charitable Patient Care fund. This fund provides assistance to patients who need help covering expenses associated with diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
