A fundraiser is being held in Evansville to support a Posey County deputy who was shot in the line of duty.

The fundraising event is being held at the Hacienda restaurant at 5440 Pearl Drive on Evansville's west side throughout the day Tuesday.

From 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tuesday, the restaurant will donate 20% of its proceeds to support Posey County Deputy Bryan Hicks and his family.

Even if you're not planning on sitting down to eat, you can still stop in and make a donation to support Deputy Hicks.  A donation bin is available, and "Deputy Hicks" shirts can also be purchased during the fundraising event for $20 a piece.

Deputy Hicks was shot in the head in September while serving a welfare check. He has since undergone brain surgery and continues to recover.

Tuesday's fundraising effort at Hacienda was hosted by Mt. Vernon Lodge #133, which is the Posey County chapter for the Fraternal Order of Police of Indiana.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
