A community is reaching out to help the family of an armoured guard who died in an ambush on the University of Alberta campus in June.

Brian Ilesic, one of three guards shot and killed during a robbery at Hub Mall, left behind his 12-year-old daughter Kiannah.

As Scott Fralick reports, tonight friends and family are holding a silent auction fundraiser at the Rink in St. Albert to raise money for Kiannah Ilesic's post-high school education.
