People came out in Macon Saturday to help raise money for a good cause.

The Rutland High School Cheerleaders hosted their annual car and bike show along with a back to school giveaway.
It's all in hopes of providing school supplies for children in the community.

The fundraiser started 4 years ago, as a way to raise money for their competition squad. All of the money donated is put back in the community now that the school no longer has a competitive cheer squad.

"It's a lot of fun and a lot of people come out. It gives us a chance to interact with the community," says 10th grade cheerleader Emily Herndon.

People got a chance to check out some unique cars while also enjoying vendors selling everything from food to jewelry.

Students gave away trophies to best car, truck and cheerleaders choice.

Rutland's cheerleading coach says it's important to effect positive change in the community. "We want Macon schools to be just as supported. So we decided that if we give back to our community, then our community will support us. So we're making the first step by giving back to them first," says Varsity Head Coach Veronica Christian.

All proceeds will be donated to Rescue Mission House in Macon to help provide supplies for those in need.
