Organization holds final fundraiser in honor of fallen officer

CREATED Aug. 3, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas community continues to honor and remember fallen Las Vegas Police Officer David Vanbuskirk.

A fundraiser was held on Saturday in honor of the officer.

Vanbuskirk was a search and rescue officer who died nearly two weeks ago trying to save a stranded hiker on Mount Charleston.

Saturday's event was hosted by the Injured Police Officers Fund.

When an officer is injured and killed in the line of duty, the organization donates $25,000 to the officer's family.

Saturday was the community's chance to help.

Vanbuskirk leaves behind a wife and extended family.

Saturday's fundraiser was the last one planned in his honor by the organization.
