STOCKBRIDGE, Wis. — A fatal tragedy was remembered today, now ten years after a dad and his daughter died on Lake Winnebago.

On Saturday, friends and family came together to celebrate the lives of Dan and Savannah Kleinhans.

Dan's truck went through the ice in 2009. He and Savannah died.

The event on Saturday brought to the close the Have a Heart Campaign.

It raised more than $100,000 to equip and train an all-volunteer dive team from Calumet County.

"I look back at ten years, and I can't imagine trying to live through what we experienced as a family and look at the loss, without doing this," Savannah's mom, Tina Katze, said.

Savannah's friend, Tiffany Dombrowski, survived the incident. She was at Saturday's event.
