Employees of Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery and Old Chicago worked together to provide a warm Christmas dinner for those in need on Christmas Day.

It’s the 11th year for the event.

"Today is all about providing an experience for our guests that they probably wouldn't be able to afford on their own," said Luke Dunham, regional manager of Old Chicago. "It’s a special day to create memories for people who are getting back on their feet.”

More than 225 community volunteers helped make this happen along with the employees.

Santa even stopped by for some fun after his very busy night Tuesday. He posed for pictures with the kids and his elves delivered gifts.

The event was held at Rock Bottom in downtown Minneapolis.
