Non and Pop Balloons is hosting a fundraising event on Friday for Ace, a little boy who is now battling cancer after being diagnosed with Leukemia roughly one week ago.

The organizers of the fundraising event say they're aiming to make sure Ace and his family have everything they need going forward.

According to the event page on Facebook, the event is being held Friday at Cowboy Jim's Flea Market at 820 W Main St from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

During the "Twisting for Ace" fundraising event, Non and Pop Balloons will be twisting balloon animals and flowers for donations.

Organizers of the event say all donations will go directly to Ace's parents. They say no monetary donation is too big or small.

Anyone unable to make it to the fundraising event in-person on Friday is encouraged to donate to the GoFundMe page "Rally Around Ace," which has raised just over $10,000 of its $15,000 goal so far.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
