New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Patriots Announce 10 Winners in “Super Bowl for Super People” Sweepstakes

The Patriots are stating today that 10 residents of Massachusetts, Rhode Island Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine have won the team’s “Super Bowl for Super People” online sweepstakes because of their work in the public service sector.

The Kraft family and Patriots say the firefighters, soldiers, nurses and police officers will receive an all-expenses paid and one-day trip to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, with each winner accompanied by a guest. The package includes game tickets, round-trip airfare, transportation to and from the game and tickets to the Patriots’ postgame party.

The ten winners were randomly selected from a pool of 4,000 New England residents who were identified and nominated as “Super People” by their superiors.

The winners include Jim Taber, a nurse from Tiverton, R.I.; Sherry DeGenova, a police officer from Hartford, Conn.; John Surabian, a firefighter from Stoneham, Mass.; Timothy Sullivan, a police officer from East Walpole, Mass.; Patrick Squires, a soldier from Higham, Mass.; Whitney Hartwell, a teacher from Norfolk, Mass.; and Tara Jean, a nurse from Dracut, Mass.

Other winners include Timothy Wilder, a firefighter from Somersworth, N.H.; Jim Miller, a teacher from Auburn, Maine; and Todd Seymour, a soldier from Lempster, N.H.

“Throughout the season, we celebrated volunteerism in my sweetheart’s honor,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said, referring to his wife of 48 years, Myra Hiatt Kraft, who died of cancer in July. “Today, we honor 10 men and women who represent so many others in the field of public service and thank them for their selfless service to our New England communities.”

Kraft added, “We have heard countless examples of outstanding service through our ‘Celebrate Volunteerism’ campaign and we are happy to extend the campaign with the recognition of these deserving individuals.”
