1st Car Show to Benefit to remember Maxx Poff

Posted: Updated:
The community came together today to remember a William Byrd High School sophomore. 
The first "Quality Cares Charity Benefit Auto Show" was Sunday in Vinton in honor of 16-year old "Maxx Poff". 
His family says he took his own life after being bullied. 
They say he talked about cars and racing all the time and having so many people support them today was overwhelming. 
"I'd Like people to see that we are a community here. This is what we are. We are neighbors and people need to start being neighbors and friends and the community and stop being by ourselves," David Poff, Maxx's father said.
On Monday at WSLS at Six Katie Love sits down with his mother and talks about her fight to end bullying.
