Ricardo Vazquez Montoto.

The Mierense lawyer Ricardo Vázquez Montoto, collaborator of LA NUEVA ESPAÑA, has been recognized with the XIX Sports-Cultural Initiatives Award “Rufino Ballesteros”, awarded by the Association of Sports-Cultural Initiatives of Gijón. The award ceremony will take place next Tuesday, at 7:00 p.m., in the assembly hall of the Ateneo Obrero de La Calzada. In the collective section, the award went to Cadena Ser.

The entity has rewarded the selfless work of Vázquez Montoto who, together with Rufino Ballesteros (who died this year), promoted a non-profit legal advice for small cultural and sports entities in the region, with the aim of providing legal aid.

From this year on, the awards will bear the name of Rufino Ballesteros, who chaired the Association of Sports-Cultural Initiatives since its creation, 34 years ago.
