Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook added some star power to a local non-profit, Saturday night.

Westbrook was at a fundraiser for the Needs Foundation, which gives un-served food from local restaurants to hungry families in the metro.

News 9 caught up with Westbrook to ask about his involvement.

"This is a huge part of what I'm interested in, you know me personally. And just trying to keep it going with us playing basketball, I think it's really important for us to give back," said Westbrook.

Saturday night's private event was at the former Governors Mansion on North McKinley. There was a live auction that included a Thunder jersey signed by Westbrook.
