WESTPORT, Conn. — In honor of Father's Day, the "Today" show talked to Clea Newman of Fairfield about the charitable work of her father, the late Paul Newman, an Academy Award-wining actor and longtime resident of Westport.

Clea Newman, 51, now helps to run his charitable legacy, the SeriousFun Children's Network, formerly known as The Association of Hole in the Wall Camps. She told "Today" that she is proud to carry on her father's legacy of helping children who are battling serious illnesses.

Paul Newman died in 2008 of lung cancer, but Clea Newman said she will say a toast to him and his work today, Father's Day.
