Newport News, Va. – Auto enthusiasts brought their hot rods, sports cars, trucks and motorcycles to benefit a worthy cause today.

Newport News Sheriff’s Department sponsored an event today called Project Lifesaver. Folks ventured out to the Kmart on Warwick Blvd. to show off their rides.

Project Lifesaver was created to help locate adults and children with mental disabilities that wander away from home.

Participants were asked to bring canned food donations along with their registration. The canned foods went to the Virginia Peninsula Food Bank.

All cash proceeds from today’s event will go to Project Lifesaver.
