MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. -- A New Jersey community has raised enough money to send a beloved school bus driver and die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan to the Super Bowl.
A group of parents and students surprised Gary Kelmer with the present when he pulled up to the last stop on his bus route on Monday in Mount Laurel.
Parents Amy and Izaak Smith wanted to raise money as a way to thank "Mr. Gary" for his daily kindness. They raised more than $5,000 in just a few days on the fundraising site GoFundMe to send Kelmer and his wife to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, where the Eagles will take on the New England Patriots.
The Smiths purchased tickets, airfare and personalized jerseys for the couple.
A stunned Kelmer on Monday called it a "special dream come true" and exclaimed, "I'm ecstatic."
