PAHOKEE, FL (WFLX) - On Inauguration Day, a local boy hopes he'll be in the crowd, and he's been working hard to get his wish.

Update, WED 12 PM: An aspiring 10-year-old journalist gets the cash he needs to take a trip to D.C.

"Lindsay Cohen is now my home girl, too. Cheese!"

Damon Weaver gives a shout out to our own Lindsay Cohen in our last visit with him.

He's interviewed some top notch celebrities, including Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade, Caroline Kennedy, even Vice President Elect Joe Biden. Now, he wants to interview Barack Obama. He booked his trip to Washington D.C. for the interview.

Even without the money to pay for it. The Kiwanis Club donated $3,000 for the trip. And Wednesday, it's presenting that check.

Previously: Damon Weaver, a Pahokee 5th grader, has become a hit on YouTube for his numerous interviews with politicians and news makers. The young reporter has already raised most of the money necessary to land his dream interview with the president-elect.

Just in case, the pint-sized Internet star and reporter for his Canal Point Elementary School has already came up with two questions for Mr. Obama.

"In my town of Pahokee; there are a lot of shootings. What are you going to do to keep me safe?"

"And, President Obama, will you let Joe the Plumber fix the White House bathrooms?"

Damon's already booked tickets for himself, his teacher and his camera guy, a classmate. They've been working with Congressman Alcee Hastings to secure the interview, but still no word if he'll get his shot.
