OVER-THE-RHINE (FOX19) -

Nick and Drew Lachey announced Friday plans to add an additional show on the 98 Degrees at Christmas Tour.

All proceeds of the December 15 concert at the Aronoff Center will towards recovery costs for a shooting victim.

"As you may have heard, Ellie Richardson, who was an employee at Lachey's bar in Cincinnati, and an overall incredible person, was the victim of a horrible, horrible crime on early Thanksgiving morning," said Nick Lachey.

Authorities said a van almost struck Richardson, when she was leaving around Lachey's around 3 a.m. Richardson and the driver got into a verbal argument before she was shot. 

"Now there isn't much we can do to help her with her physical pain, but there is a way we can help support her financially during this difficult time," said Drew Lachey.

Tickets are now on sale.

"We'd love to see you there, and thank you for the support," added Drew. 

The support from Nick and Drew for the city and their staff is well known among bar patrons.

"I know Nick is a very big advocate for his staff and he likes to make sure that they're all taken care of, and Drew is in there pretty much once a week," Shawn Kitchen said. 

Also Friday, Lachey's Bar released a statement on Facebook, detailing a Dec. 12 fundraiser for Richardson. The post also asked people to donate to an online fundraiser.

Police found the van believed to be involved in the shooting, but are still working to identify the suspect.
