St. Petersburg, Florida -- Fulfilling dreams for kids in need and helping fill the stadium during Tampa Bay Rays games -- what better way to make a difference. 

It's all part of a program called "Seats of Dreams" and many kids, like 16-year-old Lisbet Menendez and Daniel Rosario, are benefiting from the program. They say they are living the dream right now as they get the chance to sit in Tropicana Field for the first time.

They got that chance thanks to people like Pat and Paul Brown. 

"Everybody wins with this program. The Rays get people in the stands and the kids get to enjoy the game. We are happy the seats are being used," the Browns told us.

The Browns are season ticket holders and are Seats of Dreams donors. When they can't make it to a Rays game, they donate their seats to a number of different charities.

At a recent Rays-Rangers game, some 200 kids from the Boys and Girls Club got the experience of a lifetime.

Ricky Gallon, of the Boys and Girls Club, says this is amazing for the kids.

"This was something special, they earned the right to come with good grades and behavior."

Everyone involved says this is a win-win program. Donate your seats and children will fill them. You can learn more about the program by going to
