PASCO, WA - Seahawks fans, from the area, are beginning to make their way to New Jersey for the Super Bowl on Sunday. 

NBC Right Now caught up with Michelle and Barry Palmore who got tickets to the big game after Michelle's mom, Helen, won a Super Bowl package from Legends Casino.

Helen said she gave her daughter and son-in-law the tickets because she doesn't like to fly and she wanted them to have a once in a lifetime experience. 

"At first I wanted my husband to go because he's such an athlete, but my husband felt that it wasn't fair for him and my daughter to go and my son-in-law not to go," said Helen Brown, who originally won the package at a VIP event at Legends. 

Michelle described her reaction when her mom called her with the news.

"I said, 'No way' and she said, "Oh you're going to the Super Bowl, explained Michelle. "I said, 'No.' She said, 'Yes' and I said, 'Oh my god...thank you,'" she continued.

Michelle and Barry's Super Bowl package includes airfare, a four night stay at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, two tickets worth $1,500 each and other VIP perks.
