GREEN BAY, Wis. -

A New Jersey boy has a complete stranger to thank for his chance to meet his idol: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Fans were given tickets for a meet and greet chance with Rodgers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. 

Melissa Sewer said she flew in from New Jersey to surprise her son Emmanuel with the experience. They showed up and were No. 201 for an event with a maximum of 200 guests.

Sewer said that just when she thought the trip was ruined, a complete stranger standing in front of them turned around and gave them his ticket. The man from

Michigan went home emptyhanded, and traveled the three hours back home.
