HOWARD - Wrestlers took to the ring in Howard on Saturday to honor a good Samaritan who served his country and gave of his life helping others in his community.
The event paid tribute to 26-year-old Andrew Steiner--a two tour Army veteran. Steiner died from injuries he received after stopping to help at the scene of a car crash on Highway 172 back in January.
The benefit at the Watering Hole in Howard was sponsored by Wisconsin Professional Wrestling and featured a full card of matches. More than 200 people came out to take in the wrestling and a silent auction.
The proceeds from the event will go to the Andrew Steiner Memorial Fund that will help set up a scholarship in Andrew's name, as well as give back to fellow veterans.
"It's wonderful that people care and they want to do something this isn't about Andrew this is about the veterans and other people that need help," explained Doug Steiner, Andrew's father.
It's to do something that's just right for the family of Andrew Steiner and right for Andrew himself," said Ryan "Bruno" Leisman, organizer with Wisconsin Professional Wrestling.
In addition to Saturday's wrestling fund raiser, a motorcycle ride is being planned for next month.
