New England healthcare workers return home from trip to Super Bowl
FOXBORO, M.A. (WLNE) — Seventy-six healthcare workers from across New England returned home from the Super Bowl Monday morning, after witnessing Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the Lombardi Trophy.
The group was part of 7500 vaccinated healthcare workers, who were able to attend the Super Bowl for free courtesy of the NFL.
Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, paid for the group’s transportation and amenities and even let them charter the Patriots team jet to and from Tampa.
The group returned to Gillette stadium at roughly 4:15am Monday morning, and many opted to stay the night at the Renaissance Hotel in Patriot Place, courtesy of Kraft.
“It was such a good game,” said one worker who attended. “And of course, it’s just kind of the cherry on top for Tom and Gronk to win again.”
“It was just awesome,” said another healthcare worker. “The Kraft family, the Patriots, everything was just wonderful.”
