It was an unusual scene outside the Vigo County Sheriff's Department earlier today.
People lined up, not for the jail, but for food and a silent auction.
Officers and the people of Terre Haute joined forces to raise money for Kaylynn Zehner.
Kaylynn is the daughter of correctional officer, Curtis Zehner.
Co-workers in the sheriff's office pitched in food, silent auction items and a helping hand for today's benefit.
"We're all like a family pretty much. We all get along real well and I knew that they'd all pull together and I knew we'd all come together and I knew it'd turn out good, " said Penny Davis who organized the event.
1-year-old Kaylynn needs open heart surgery.
All donations from today's event will go directly to support Kaylynn's surgery.
Kaylynn's family says they've been able to stay strong through the support of the Vigo County Sheriff's Office.
"Everybody who deals with something like this should have someone who would put something on like this for them because it just really make you feel loved and people kind of ask me why we aren't as in tears all the time because of things we deal with and the future and it's just because we have people like this in our life to keep us motivated," said Kelsey Zehner, Kaylynn's mother.
Kaylynn's family set up an account at Fifth Third Bank for monetary donations, but they say prayers are what they ask for most.
