MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Discovery World museum in Milwaukee plans to donate part of the proceeds from this weekend's attendance to the charity started by "American Idol" finalist Danny Gokey.

The Milwaukee native was among the top three "American Idol" finalists before being voted off Wednesday. He tried out for the show four weeks after his wife, Sophia, died following surgery for a heart condition.

Gokey started Sophia's Heart Foundation after she died.

Discovery World President Joel Brennan says the museum and guests want to thank Gokey for the positive attention he's brought to the community.

The museum will donate $1 for every general admission ticket sold Saturday and Sunday.
