Coca-Cola, Shaw's Supermarkets, and the Boston Bruins have teamed up to make one lucky Bruins fan's dream come true. After purchasing a Coke from Shaw's in the New England area, contestants were encouraged to enter for a chance to win a "Player for a Day Experience" with the Boston Bruins.
The lucky winner's name is Mark Karolkiewicz. Mark has been a Bruins fan his whole life and even though he had the opportunity to be a Bruins Player for a Day, he selflessly gave the prize to his son Eric Karolkiewicz, also a die-hard Bruins fan!
As part of the prize package, Eric signed a one day contract with the Bruins, got a personalized team jersey, and got to visit a team practice. Eric, his father, and two guests also received a private tour of the TD Garden, had a meet and greet with Bruins Assistant coach Jay Gandolf, they got to sit on the bench during the pre-game warm-ups, and they received 4 prime rink side tickets to a game! "It's an unbelievable experience... To be a Bruins for a day is a dream come true," says Eric.
Thanks to Coca Cola, Shaw's and the Boston Bruins, these Bruins fans got an opportunity of a lifetime... and most importantly they got to spend an amazing day together!
