Jesi's Ride Against Domestic Violence will roll out of Mt. Carmel, Illinois on Saturday, August 21st.

The event honors the memory of Jesi Tice who was gunned down by her estranged boyfriend outside a Princeton, Indiana Restaurant in 2013.

The 34-year-old mother of three had just celebrated her son's eighth-grade graduation at the restaurant.

To prevent a similar tragedy from happening to other women, the ride will be raising money for the Safe Haven Women and Children's Shelter in Mt. Carmel.

Riders can sign up at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles Club on Poplar Street starting at 8:30 a.m. that morning. The ride will start at 10 a.m.

If you would like to join the ride at the first stop in Oakland City, you can sign up at the Eagles Club there.

It is $20 per rider and $10 per passenger.

When the group returns to Mt. Carmel, organizers plan to hold a car, truck & bike show that will start at 5 p.m. in the parking lot of the Eagles Club on Poplar Street.

It will include trophies and ribbons for the first 40 entries. They are asking for a donation at registration.

Along with the car show, there will also be a benefit dinner and auction happening inside the club.

For $10 a plate, they will be serving Beer Bones BBQ's pulled pork and smoked chicken along with sides, dessert, and a drink.

The band Black Stone will take the stage at 8 p.m. to close out the night.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
