NOW: Bar in Walker’s Point holding fundraiser for family of fallen officer


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A bar in Walker's Point is helping raise money for the family of fallen Milwaukee Police Officer Michael Michalski. 

At O'Lydia's Bar, patrons can buy a police badge to post on the wall. 

There's no set amount, but most are spending $5-$10. All the money raised benefits the Michalski family. 

The fundraiser started at the beginning of the month and staff at O'Lydia's says it's been going great. 

"We're well over 200 badges and we've had a couple donations over $100. The majority are in the $5-10 range, we're well over $3,000 and we're hoping to end the month strong, quite a few more," said Rick Sackett with O'Lydia's Bar. 

You can buy a badge to support the Michalski family through the end of the month. O'Lydia's is located at 1st and Florida.
