'Miracle on Tejon' turns Old Chicago Restaurant into Christmas party

Old Chicago on Tejon wasn't open for business on Christmas, but it was open to spread some holiday cheer. Over 400 homeless and in-need families headed to the "Miracle on Tejon".

The Pikes Peak Community Action Agency served those folks a traditional holiday meal complete with turkey and ham.

For some families, it's become an annual tradition.

"It means a lot because I can spend time with my family and my family enjoys it here. It's really important because family is everything. That's all you have is family and friends so to be able to be with them is just amazing," said Melissa Everett who is a return attendee.

Kids got to visit with santa and get their pictures taken. They also enjoyed a gift bag filled with books, toys, and a gift card for new shoes.
