Angel Lopez, an up and coming sports apparel designer, has never forgotten where he came from and the people who helped him along the way.

Lopez, whose new company, Novato Sports Apparel, designs and manufactures apparel for basketball, baseball, football, and soccer teams, has pledged to donate a percentage of his profits to a Sunset Park-based organization that helps at-risk youth turn their lives around.

Lopez said the organization Opportunities For A Better Tomorrow (OBT) helped him several years ago when he was a teenager with no direction. “They helped me big time,” he told the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. “OBT is the foundation for the business world for me.”
