The Evansville Police Department raised funds to support the fight against breast cancer by selling special pink badges during the month of October, which is breast cancer awareness month.

Through the fundraising, EPD was able to present Deaconess Foundation with a check to support the fight against breast cancer.

EPD Officers Joseph Harter and Philip Smith presented the check to Deaconess Foundation on Tuesday.

The funds raised by EPD will help under/uninsured women receive life-saving mammogram screenings.

The department said previously that for breast cancer awareness month, it was honoring the memory of former EPD Sergeant Kim Booker, who lost her battle with breast cancer 10 years ago.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
