Honor Flight of Southern Indiana is teaming up with Mission BBQ to help send 20 veterans on the next flight to Washington D.C.

Those who wish to support the next Honor Flight can do so by purchasing a limited edition "American Heroes" cup for an extra $2 when eating at Mission BBQ.

Mission BBQ stepped in to help when Honor Flight of Southern Indiana when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the national Honor Flight Network had to put a halt to all fundraising events.

"They came up with this fundraiser because we weren't allowed to do anything because of the whole COVID thing," said Diane Shaw of Honor Flight of Southern Indiana. "We weren't allowed to go out and do fundraising. They stepped up in a big way."

More than 4,000 cups have been purchased so far to support our veterans.

Those who would like to support the next Honor Flight by purchasing a cup have until Aug 10 to do so.

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.
