The Asphalt Cowboys in Redding held a special luncheon Tuesday to talk about some exciting projects they've been working on.

The Cowboys announced they raised $55,000 to help victims of the Carr Fire.

And they formed a special committee to make sure that every dime of that money is recorded and distributed to victims.

They also announced details of their annual Asphalt Cowboys barbecue, which was postponed because of the Carr Fire.

“We usually have this in the second week in September, but with the Carr Fire and everything else going on, we moved it back to October in order for the people to get a little better handle on what was going on the people that are out of their homes and that sort of thing,” media Director Tom Spade said. “We're excited about it. It's going to be a good barbecue. Come and join us. We're going to have fun.”

This is the first time in 65 years that they've ever had to postpone the barbecue.

Spade says all proceeds from the barbecue will go toward funding all of the events that they put on during Redding Rodeo Week.

He says the barbecue and the Pancake Breakfast are their biggest fundraisers of the year.
