Catherine Cheney, a seventh/eighth teacher for Torrance School District and lifelong Chargers fan, couldn't believe what she was hearing.
"Normally I don't win stuff, so it was one of those, 'Are you sure?' moments," Cheney said. "I was super excited and then called my best friends, and we set a good day for us to come (here) and check this out!"
Cheney's reaction was to finding out she was the winner of the Los Angeles Chargers' VIP Training Camp Experience. She and 10 of her friends were invited to Jack Hammett Sports Complex to take in all the sights and sounds camp has to offer, but with special perks.
"This VIP Experience, we get a chance to be in the shade of the tent and out of the heat," she said. "We got some really great food from Tender Greens, which we like! We get a chance to meet some players on the field after practice, and a chance to park nearby (along with) some swag."
Though this was her second time back at Chargers Camp, the experience she had was unforgettable. She truly felt like a VIP, and thanks to the Chargers, made 10 of her friends feel the same as well.
"We went last year to training camp, so it's nice to come back and have a bit of a different experience this year. It's nice to have friends and family with us (on this) nice day enjoying the end of summer break. It's great!"
