Thirteen-year-old Angelina received a surprise this week during what she thought was a regular tour of the WCCO-TV studio.
The Children’s patient who battles a chronic lung disease was the recipient of a generous gift from a Twin Cities family. The father of the family bought four tickets as a Christmas gift for his two daughters, but a scheduling conflict made the family’s attendance at the show not possible.
Instead of selling the tickets, the man enlisted the help of WCCO, which identified Angelina, who was featured earlier this year as one of “Kylie’s Kids,” a segment with WCCO’s Kylie Bearse that highlights a children’s hospital patient. The tickets, and $200 to spend on anything in preparation for the concert, were donated to Angelina and her best friend, Samantha. The pair were surprised on the TV station’s rooftop at the end of the tour.
