Hot Rod Café in Kingman held a benefit car show Saturday to benefit Mario, 9, the great-grandson of the owners of the café, who has Chron's Disease.

Mark Burak, the owner's son, who was there with his wife Julie, said about 40 cars entered the show. Live music from Vinyl Fusion and food rounded out the event.

Donations at Hot Rod Café are still welcome to help with Mario's medical expenses.

Mark Burak wanted to thank Ma and Pa, the owners of the café, as well as Mohave County Positive Change for making the event possible.
