A Very Special Delivery For Some Season Seat Holders

As the official courier sponsor of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Purolator delivers season tickets to all Leafs season seat holders.

But this year, there was a pretty incredible twist for four loyal season seat holders chosen from a mix of businesses and fans and informed only to expect a "special delivery" of their tickets.

So special that the Purolator couriers involved had to apply just to get the assignment -- including a 100-word essay on why they should be chosen. Based on their way with words, dedication to Purolator's values and overall contribution as employees, Shahab Gafur (team member since 1989 and life-long Maple Leafs fan) and Cristina Bicho (team member since 2007) earned the nod.

Their reward? Help deliver Maple Leafs season tickets with forward Colby Armstrong and defenceman John-Michael Liles.

Armstrong and Kat of Leafs TV were aboard one truck with two stops to make, including a visit to Jean M. Wassmansdorf -- who has had Leafs tickets in the family since 1943!

Liles meanwhile, teamed up with Akil Augustine to visit a pair of local businesses that hold season seats.

With some of our great fans and other media along for the ride, it made for a ticket delivery some of our season seat holders should never forget!
