(KWES) -

On Friday, lawmen in Odessa celebrated another successful fundraiser and they're getting a jump start on the event for next year.

They met to announce $14,000 will go to the Assist the Officer Foundation.

It's all thanks to a fundraiser called the Midessa Block Party where officers welcomed the public by showing off their vehicles, enjoying some good music, food and fun.

The best part is it's all for a good cause.

"It goes to a good cause. Last year, we were able to donate all the money to the families of the fallen Dallas PD officers as a result of that tragic event. So this is something that we will continue to do every year, so we appreciate all the support in reference to this event," said Cpl. Steve LeSueur with the Odessa Police Department.

At next year's event, the officers hope to make it bigger and better so they can donate even more to the Assist the Officer Foundation.
