Clearwater Beach, Florida -- The Clearwater Marine Aquarium will help raise money Saturday for a fund dedicated to the education of a fallen soldier's son.

CMA will donate $2 from each general admission to benefit Brodey Sitton, whose dad, Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Steven Sitton, 26, was killed last month when he stepped on an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan.

CMA Board Member Tom Orr was told that SSGT. Sitton planned to bring his family to the aquarium to see Winter, the tailless dolphin, when he returned from service overseas.
