Miracle on Tejon

Old Chicago in Downtown Colorado Springs held their 9th annual, "Miracle on Tejon" event today benefiting low income families in the area.

"One in seven kids here in Colorado Springs live in poverty and that's what our agency does," said Pikes Peak Community Action spokesman, John Tighe. 

Hundreds of low-income families making their way to the restaurant to receive food, presents, and good cheer. And those with the event say it's a simple thing that can really brighten up an other wise difficult part of life. 

"Nobody likes to go through that, but if they can just have one moment to forget about all that and just man that was fun, then we did our job," said Old Chicago spokesman, Todd Wyatt.

"Some of these kids, that's the only gift they're getting this year. So it's a great event for those that don't have that much," said Tighe.

Both Tighe and Wyatt say it's something the look forward to putting on every year, and can't wait to get started planning next years event.
