SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A local organization is raising money for a good Samaritan that died in February in Pine Valley.

Sunday, the It's All About the Kids Foundation hosted the "Be Like Bob" art show to raise money for a scholarship in Bob Bruno's honor.

Bruno died in February when he stopped to help a driver on the I-8 in Pine Valley. While helping, there was another accident and to avoid being hit, Bruno jumped over the side of the guardrail, falling into the canyon below.

The money raised from Sunday's art show will go to a scholarship named in his honor.

"I think he would be really honored to know that we were memorializing him this way," said Gwendolyn Sneed, Bruno's long-time partner.

Sneed tells 10News Bruno had been supporting the charity for over 15 years.
