Publishers Clearing House Winner Can Keep Her House

FOR SALE signs lined the street when the PCH Prize Patrol van pulled into the neighborhood for the surprise sweepstakes winning moment. It was evident this area had been hit by the recession. Behind one of the signs, the famous prize award team spotted the house number of the newest Publishers Clearing House winner.

With TV cameras rolling, their hearts pumping, and the Big Check, balloons and roses in hand, they approached the door.

Winner Stephanie Gornichec of Caldwell, Idaho was overcome with emotion when she heard she won one million dollars in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. The prize couldn’t have come at a better time for her and her husband, Shaun. Stephanie lost her job a year ago and has been unable to find work. “We had 2 incomes, bought a beautiful home and when suddenly half your income is gone … It’s tough!” choked Stephanie, through tears of joy.

The Gornichecs were on the verge of losing their home and considering filing for bankruptcy because they had no more options … that is until they heard that famous knock on their door from Publishers Clearing House.

Shaun wasted no time in throwing out the FOR SALE sign.
