The fundraiser is being held at "The Shack" at 1158 Main Street in Ramona from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. 100 percent of the proceeds will go towards Jessica’s family.

Jessica Foderingham, 29, was killed when a 2011 GMC Yukon pickup truck being driven by Andrew Dorian Milonis, 44, rear-ended the 2016 Dodge Dart she was driving on San Vicente Road and Arena Drive at about 6:45 p.m. Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol. 

Milonis allegedly fled following the collision, then abandoned his vehicle about a mile away and called for a Lyft driver to give him a ride to a bar on Main Street, CHP public-affairs Officer Kevin Pearlstein said. Deputies found him at the tavern about an hour later and arrested him.
