A family fundraiser was held Thursday for the father who sacrificed his life to save a teen girl last month.

Peter Radke, 43, jumped into Lake Erie to save a girl he didn't even know, who was in trouble off Huntington Beach in Bay Village. He drowned, but she survived.
 
Area Bob Evans will donate 15 percent of all dine-in and carry out sales to the Peter Radke Fund.

"I know my husband did a heroic thing, but a lot of people do heroic things every day, you know? But for my husband to get this kind of recognition, it really blows my mind," said Michelle Radke.
 
The money raised will go into the fund and be used to pay for family expenses, as well as the children's educations.
