Dickey's Barbecue raising funds for local hero

DickeysBBQ.jpegTwo area Dickeys Barbecue restaurants will be raising funds to help a local man who was stabbed while trying to protect teens from bullies.

Ray Snook and Jared Katzenbarger, owners of the Dickey's franchises -- located at 1015 Riley St. in Folsom and at 4640 Natomas Blvd. in Natomas -- have announced that they will donate profits earned between 4 and 9 p.m. on June 11 to Jonathan Robinson, who was in a coma for more than a week after the April 1 incident. The fundraiser's proceeds will help pay for Robinson's medical expenses.

Robinson, 32, was stabbed seven times when he tried to help some teenagers who were being bullied near the North Pointe Park Apartments in Natomas. His suspected attackers were later taken into custody. Robinson required six hours of emergency surgery and spent a week in a medically induced coma, according to the Gridley Herald.

Robinson, who is expected to make a full recovery, will make appearances at both the Natomas and Folsom locations during the fundraiser, according to Katzenbarger.

Dickey's operates more than 300 restaurants in 40 states.
