Here's a sweet way to raise money for the less fortunate.
Outreach Ministries held its second annual Cheesecake for Charity fund raising event tonight.

Local baker, Cheesecakes by Krista, had several samples at St. Mary's with one-of-a-kind gourmet cheesecakes.

Live and silent auctions were also held with several items like jewelry, artwork, and trips.

All proceeds will benefit less fortunate people in the Evansville area.
Executive Director Amy Kroeger says, "We've assisted about 5,500 families. And within those families are 14,000 individuals which we were able to impact their lives."

Meteorologist Ron Rhodes was there tonight to host the live auction.
