Mario Lopez supports troops and veterans through Wounded Warrior Project

NEW YORK, April 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Television host, actor, and best-selling author Mario Lopez is supporting veterans by hosting the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner®. The May 16 event at Gotham Hall in New York City recognizes warriors and highlights the most dedicated supporters who make WWP's mission to honor and empower wounded warriors possible.

"The Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner is a truly special night for honoring those who have served," said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. "We shine the light on warriors and supporters who are selfless in their pursuit of improving the lives of veterans and their families. I'm excited to have Mario Lopez here encouraging warriors on their journeys."

Lopez has co-hosted the entertainment news magazine show Extra since 2008. His career in television and film spans more than 30 years. Among his credits include This Is Us, Jane the Virgin, Brooklyn 99, The Rookie, Dancing with the Stars, and Saved by the Bell.

"I'm honored to spend time with veterans and the people who help them achieve their goals," said Lopez. "Wounded Warrior Project continues to serve them in so many ways. I couldn't be more excited to serve as host of the Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner."

The 13th annual dinner will feature the Courage Award, which honors a warrior who's exemplified the core values of WWP. The Empowerment Award recognizes a company's effort to support WWP injured veterans and their families, while the Service Award honors community supporters who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to serve warriors.
