Bob’s Discount Furniture and the New England Patriots announced that they hosted the second annual Bed-Zone BASH event for 200 local children at Gillette Stadium on Monday, August 19th. In partnership with the Patriots and A Bed for Every Child, Bob’s surprised local children by unveiling 200 Patriots-themed Bob’s beds, one bed for each child. In addition to the beds, the children also received new Patriots bedding, pajamas donated by the Pajama Program, a personal care package, and other bedtime essentials.
The event kicked off with a few words from New England Patriots Foundation President, Josh Kraft, followed by John Weldon, COO of Bob’s Discount Furniture. Cheers burst through Gillette as Isaiah Wynn, James White, Stephon Gilmore and other Patriots players headed to the field to sign autographs and join in the fun. Throughout the event, the children were treated to carnival-themed activities such as face painting, caricature art and football-themed games with the Patriots cheerleaders and Pat Patriot.
