LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — This weekend the Las Vegas community showed up big time for an 8-year-old boy, JoJo, in the east valley.

His mother, Veronica, put a call out on Facebook asking a few cars to drive by their home on Saturday night for a socially-distanced celebration for his birthday.

More than 100 vehicles showed up with birthday gifts, candy and signs, his mom estimates. Many of them were from the 702 Elite Car Club.

Veronica says it was something her son will never forget.

"The love the community showed was unreal and memorable for my son," she said. "Total strangers came together."
