Hoping for a PCH Prize Delivery

Just Out Of The Shower, Just in Case

As you may know by now, we like to catch our winners by surprise and bring some completely unexpected joy into their lives. But sometimes, every so often, word gets around BEFORE we reach the town we’re visiting that PCH is on the way there for a prize delivery. This is the story of how one Publishers Clearing House winner found out her chances of us showing up were looking up!

When it’s time for a prize drawing and the winner is randomly selected by the computer, we scurry to prepare for our trip to the area. Not until the winners are picked does the PCH Prize Patrolhave any idea where we’ll be going. We have to book flights and hotel rooms all at the last minute! We also contact the local media and give them as much notice as we can that we’ll be coming to a certain area to surprise a winner—but we never reveal who the winner is! Usually, the media will meet us at the florist on the prize delivery day and “file” their story later that day. But sometimes they begin reporting a little early, in this case, almost a week early! “Publishers Clearing House will be in town surprising a local winner…” the story pretty much told all residents. And guess what? Our winner, being an avid PCH Sweepstakes entrant, saw the story and got herself ready “just in case”!

Funnily enough, she thought the PCH prize award team would be arriving in town around noon, but because we had TWO winners in the same area to surprise that day, we began a little early and got to her around 10:30 in the morning. We pulled the Prize Patrol Van into her driveway and quietly snuck up to her door. She had just gotten out of the shower and quickly threw some clothes on to answer the door. And despite her “just in case” mentality, she really didn’t expect the PCH Prize Patrol to show up at her doorstep with a prize delivery. She was blown away by the surprise winning moment and so overjoyed to see us! The photo here shows our happy winner just a few minutes after we surprised her and the joy on her face speaks for itself!

If you enter the PCH Sweepstakes, maybe you’ll know that feeling of joy someday, too!

Good luck!

For are family. We have never been on a vacation or never been anywhere in the world. My Maine goal in my life is to take my mom to a tropical island one day that’s the thing that’s most important to us is seen a beautiful place and at least having a nice place to live in. Being a Millionaire and being wealthy and buying tons of crap that you don’t need is not my goal I want to support a lot of animals and foundations and Cancer Foundation and do things with money that is responsible I wish somebody would really look out for my family like I said its all I have left I’m getting older now my mother is getting older now and I think it’s time for us to have a normal life a normal things… its pretty bad when at the end of the month we are eating a can of soup I pretty much have to wait till the 6th of every month to get my food share I can only work one day a week because I’m disabled physically and mentally since the age of 2 so it’s been very hard for me in school because I couldn’t learn how to read and spell very well like other normal people so I’ve haven’t had the chance to get a very good job in my life. I have tried doing lots of things I’m very good at imports and would love to open a small little company one day and do important part in Madison Wisconsin that are very unique and hard to get but I can’t do anything for my family or anything at all because I can’t even keep 30 dollars in my pocket usually by the 20th of every month I have not a penny in my pocket no gas in the car nowhere to go I have no family besides what I told you to help me out I’m all by myself and very lonely things are getting very scary wish Publishers Clearing House would listen to this and help my family out please God help us please.
