It's one of the biggest events in professional sports and four Central New Yorkers will be only 24 rows away from the field.

The French family thought they'd spend their Super Bowl Sunday in front of a TV like most families. But this year, they will have the experience of a lifetime.

"I was shocked. I just couldn't believe it. Thrilled, no less. This is the trip of a lifetime,” says Laurie French. “I'm never going to get to the Super Bowl."

French entered a Kids Oneida raffle and on January 3rd she won the grand prize including four Super Bowl tickets. Now, her and her family will attend the Super Bowl on Sunday while knowing the $50 spent on the raffle ticket goes to a good cause.

"Proceeds from the kick off for kids raffle benefit our kids in transitional age here. We have some programs here that work with kids specifically transitioning out of their childhood into adulthood” says Steve Bulger, CEO Kids Oneida. “We really want to make sure they have the tools to succeed."

Kids Oneida told me they plan on having the same raffle next year so make sure you buy a ticket for a chance to go to Super Bowl XXXXIX in Arizona.
