The event, called Save Our Christmas, took place in a lot on Las Vegas Boulevard. Members of several car club barbecued food and handed it out, along with food, blankets, clothes and toys to people living on the streets and in area shelters, KSNV reported.

“We're just a bunch of car club people that wanted to do something good for the community. This time of year, we all don't have a lot of money out of pocket, most of us live paycheck by paycheck but you look at these people out here and most of them live plate by plate,” Jeremiah Becker, Vegas Style Car Show president, told KSNV.

The cookout was funded from proceeds raised at the 17th annual Save Our Christmas car show, which was at the Texas Station casino and hotel in Las Vegas.
