Former CART and Indy 500 driver Dominic Dobson joined Paul Silvi on Northwest Sports Tonight to discuss 9-year-old Eli Olsen who needs life-saving surgery.

Eli needs an islet cell transplant and the removal of his pancreas. Insurance will cover much of the $500,000 dollar surgery, and the family is trying to raise the final amount needed for a hopeful surgery in December.

An auction is being held Saturday night, November 3rd, at the LeMay Car Museum in Tacoma. It runs from 7 - 10pm. Tickets are $50.

For tickets, contact Nancy Holmes at 253-838-7011 or Connie Crane at 253-376-3561.
