Charlotte family heads to Philly to see the Pope

For one Charlotte family the opportunity to be part of the Pope's trip to America was something they didn't need to think twice about.

The family will travel with a bus full of students from Charlotte Catholic High School for the weekend.

For the Bunta's they say the chance to see someone they admire first hand will be life changing.

"I feel like he just has a really positive attitude about everything and his whole big idea of service and helping those less fortunate is just incredible.” Lily Bunta, said.
