BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — “I don’t know if it was just my lucky day but it was definitely my lucky day,” laughed Kara Doolittle.
This adventure started with a FaceTime call from Robert Kraft.
“He asked if we wanted to sit in the boxes he has. I, of course, said yes,” she explained.
Long-time Patriots fan Doolittle had kept in touch with the team after a sweet visit to Gillette Stadium in February, shortly after her breast cancer diagnosis.
“They’re so kind and I forget that they’re actual people,” she said. “To me, they’re celebrities.”
As she made her way to the special seats during a recent pre-season game, she was beckoned towards the 50-yard line.
“They called me over to Mr. Kraft who was standing with Bon Jovi and the rest is history,” she said with a laugh. “Bon Jovi introduced himself as Jon, so, we’re on a first name basis!”
