A barbecue fundraiser was held to benefit Officer Charles Whites, who was struck by a vehicle while working at the scene of an accident and seriously injured.

The Round Rock Police Officer Association held the fundraiser Sunday at the Allen R. Baca Center at 301 W. Bagdad Ave. #2.

The event was free to attend but encouraged to give a $10 donation for a plate of barbecue.

The city's monthly car show, live music, a motorcycle poker run and a silent auction were part of the entertainment.

The officer is currently undergoing physical therapy at a rehab hospital in Austin.
