Joe Paulino

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (Oct. 20, 2009) - Joe Paulino of Watertown, Mass. will be sporting a one-of-a kind Patriots memento on his car after today. Paulino is the first winner in the Patriots' 50th Anniversary License Plate Raffle to benefit the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. The Patriots fan won the Patriots' Massachusetts license plate No. 50 after purchasing just one raffle ticket during a visit to Patriots Training Camp in August.

Paulino returned to Gillette Stadium with his two daughters on Tuesday to be presented with his new license plate by Patriots and Pro Football Hall of Famer Andre Tippett. The family was also treated to lunch at CBS Scene by the Patriots and received a private tour of The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon.

"I couldn't believe it when the Patriots called," said Paulino. "The license plate is one-of-a-kind. I will display it proudly. This has been a special day for me and my family, and we're glad to have earned it by supporting the new England Patriots Charitable Foundation."

The license plate raffle is part of the Patriots' 50th anniversary celebration. The team is raffling coveted, two-digit Massachusetts license plates, of which there are currently less than six in circulation.

Four additional license plates are still available for raffle. Each number represents a New England Patriots Hall of Famer. They are: 14 (Steve Grogan), 20 (Gino Cappelletti), 57 (Steve Nelson) and 87 (Ben Coates). Drawings for all four will take place one week following the end of the Patriots' 2009 season.

Tickets can be purchased online at for $10 per ticket, three tickets for $25, or 15 tickets for $100.
