Washington State Family Wins PCH Christmas Cash Sweepstakes Prize
People often tell me that my job compares favorably with that of Santa Claus. I’ve thought that myself numerous times over the 20+ years that I’ve been head of the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol. But that similarity never felt more apt than a few days ago when I delivered the PCH Christmas Cash Sweepstakes Prize to the door of a Seattle family who really needed some Christmas cheer – particularly in the financial sense.
Tim, a painting contractor, has had a rough time finding employment throughout the recession. His wife Lori has required medical attention as the result of a car accident – which also necessitated the unplanned purchase of a new car. One of their twin teenage sons is slowly recuperating from a months-long illness and the extended hospitalization that went along with it. Bills were piling up, and needed groceries were being provided by their church.
While this devoutly religious family had started to decorate their tidy mobile home for Christmas — including a snowy nativity scene, they had decided that a Christmas tree was an unaffordable luxury.
“It’s amazing,” Tim said over and over again, as Lori came to the door and the tears started flowing. “You don’t know how much this means to us,” she said.
Immediately the sons were summoned home by phone — although they didn’t know the reason until they came into the house and found themselves being videotaped as part of the winning moment. Just as fast they started texting the good news to their friends in the neighborhood.
Many friends of Tim and Lori were “flabbergasted” by the good news and reportedly hurried to pch.com to enter the PCH sweepstakes. And the family’s equally surprised pastor suggested that Tim give a testimony next Sunday on “how the prize showed God’s faithfulness” – a request that Tim said he’ll be delighted to grant.
When Tim took his prize check to the bank, the teller and bank employees were all stunned. To a person they all had the same reaction: “I never thought that Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes was real!”
