But not just any meet and greet, her sponsor -- Boost Mobile -- is donating $50 to the Vallejo Charter School, for every fan who buys a Motorola phone at this Vallejo Best Buy. There's a guaranteed minimum donation of $5,000.

"What a great company to involve a charity element to the appearance I do for them it's my favorite part really," says Patrick.

Qualifying laps for the Indy car race in which Danica is participating are tomorrow afternoon at Infineon in Sonoma. The race is Sunday afternoon.
