Stories of absolute chance happen all the time and Shane Bouvet (BOO-VAY) of Stonington was at the center of a chance happening when he was invited to the Inaugural Ball based off his work with the Trump campaign's social media team. Bouvet had the same response to the invite via a phone call that most would have had.
Bouvet was an editor on a campaign social media page that had over 150 thousand followers. The story of Bouvet's attendance at the ball began to go viral and was actually seen by, at the time, the President-Elect himself.
The story would not end there however, as after the meeting, Trump told a staff aide to give a check for $10,000 to Bouvet to help him and his father who is currently battling cancer.
