Bob’s and New England Patriots Surprise 200 Children with New Beds
Bob’s Discount Furniture and the Patriots teamed up to host an event for 200 children in need at Gillette Stadium on Aug. 13., surprising each child with a Bob O Pedic Patriots-themed bed.
The children, ages 8 to 13 from Lynn, and Salem, Mass., also received new Patriots bedding and pajamas donated by Pajama Program.
The event kicked off with a few words from New England Patriots CEO Robert Kraft, followed by Mike Skirvin, president and CEO of Bob’s Discount Furniture. Cheers burst through Gillette as Devin and Jason McCourty, James White, Kyle Van Noy, and other Patriots teammates joined in the fun.
Throughout the event, the children were treated to face painting, caricature art, and football themed games with Patriots cheerleaders and Pat Patriot. The evening concluded with a special screening of Despicable Me 3.
