A Million Dollar Winner’s 2nd Anniversary Thanks


Million Dollar Winner Stephanie Gornichec and her husband Shaun were surprised by the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol with a life-changing SuperPrize two years ago this month.  For this lucky Idaho couple that winning moment (visible at pchtv.com “Prize Patrol to the Rescue”) has brought the Gornichecs financial security plus the freedom to “go adventuring.”

Life-changing high points for the Gornichecs include (1) tremendous economic relief for Stephanie — who had lost her job the year before and was in need of financial security, (2) the immediate removal of the For Sale sign in front of their house, (3) a trip to Chicago to appear with the Prize Patrol on the Windy City’s most famous national TV talk show, and (4) starting an online golfing business called Golf Addicts. (http://golfaddicts.com/).

Stephanie has kept in touch with us regarding their adventures and never fails to express to PCH her gratitude for their good fortune from the life-changing SuperPrize.  Her most recent email says “We once again thank you and the Prize Patrol for the blessings you brought that day, and we thank you every day.”

As you would expect, Million Dollar Winner Stephanie is a big fan of Publishers Clearing House.  The Gornichecs’ website, golfaddicts.com, includes a personal testimonial about PCH that will urge you to enter the PCH sweepstakes – just in case my encouragement is not enough!  Click here for the link.

Stephanie will also be featured on an October telecast of “The Lottery Changed My Life” on The Learning Channel.   Stay tuned for a specific airdate and time.

How would YOU like to win a life-changing SuperPrize like Million Dollar Winner Stephanie?  Believe me: it can happen.  But you must ENTER the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!  And that’s easy.  A simple click on this link to pch.com will get you started.   Enter the SuperPrize Sweepstakes today and every day for more chances to win!  Your own winning moment could be just around the corner.

Wishing you the best of luck!

Dave Sayer

PCH Prize Patrol Ambassador

BOY Dave!!!!

It does not seem that long ago when I 1st watched Stephanie’s winning moment..

Time does fly!!!!

I felt SO good for them watching their video.. as I had lost my job around the same time as Stephanie had & know the feelings of frustration of not being able to make ends meet & all the financial worries that go along with it.

I keep hopeing, praying & entering to better my chances of having that same feeling of economic relief that she has been lucky enough to feel..

Here hopeing to see you FINALLY in PERSON on Aug. 31st!!!!

Dave and PCH Prize Patrol,

I’ve been watching on, as well, from the time I was 14 years old! I keep praying for the winning number so that I can help my whole family relieve their economic concerns, so we can all live happy lives. If you end up in Naperville, Illinois, I will be so amazed and excited! I will show you around town and take you out for a delicious meal at one of our top restaurants!

Your friend,
Joe Glowiak

It’s here, I really look forward to your announcement day. Pretty much twice a year you reward big and I look at it as winter/spring time cleaning. If I don’t win I have a clean house at least. And so, every year I grow more hopeful.

Good Luck Maureen. What happen to Vicki P. and Gina S. The best of luck to you. I wish myself good luck too. Are you going to dance when you see Dave?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Maureen Sousa said...

    Thanks Collette, & Good Luck to you also..!!!

    Glad you mentioned Vickie & Gina as they were so MUCH inspiration to me & many others here on the blog.( I think??) but at least to me!!!. I miss their input!!!!

    I questioned that myself.. but I do not know what has happened to them….

    To answer your question… YES!!!!! I will dance ALL the way down my street with my 2 dogs Cozmo & Daisy!!!! Maybe also Baily my cat if I can get him into it!!! But he is not a dancer… more laid back!!! :0)

    Thanks so much for the affirmation of GOOD FAITH !!!

    Good Luck to you ALSO & ALL!!

    Thinking things over Colette,

    Maybe sometimes people get dissapointed that they do not win a particular win… so they do not participate any longer… I really do not know..why they may do that.??

    I could say that about me too… since I have entered since 1967 maybe not in my name but with my mom’s with her & have never won anything..

    But I have still NEVER gotten discouraged of NOT entering…

    Hopes & Dreams & Goals are what keep some people alive & well..in these times…It is tough for a whole bunch of us.. not that anyone is saying they do not want to work( I would LOVE to have a GOOD PAY job at 62)(( but I don’t))( minimum wage is all)… but with no work out there… there are not that many options out there… So PCH is a dream for SO many people!!
    Not waisting hard erned money on the lottery… but just trying to make things better for them & their families.

    Wishing you ALL the Best of Luck Collette along with ALL others that are PCH fans.

    Maureen

    P.S. but I would still DANCE with Dave & my guys if I ever was lucky enough to win

    God Bless!!!!

I want to win $5000 a week for life on Wednesday! :) When that happens, no more worrying about pretty much everything and anything. No more worrying about bills being paid late, no more having to take the bus to work and every where else for that matter, no more worrying about school finances (money for when I go into college after 12th grade,jr dues, senior dues which I haven’t paid yet because I don’t have the money to pay that.), no more worrying about being a burden to others because I can return the favor. Just so much I can accomplish and less stuff I have to worry about while I’m in school. Even though school come first, these bills don’t pay theirselves. All I do is go to school and go to work. Had to become an adult too early even though I’m 18. I just want to enjoy life while I’m still young, because every day is not promised..I’m from Garden City GA in hopes and praying that the prize patrol (DAVE, DANIELLE, AND TODD) to come here and suprise me with the $5000 a week for life check.

I have to laugh when I read that everyone cleans their houses. For 20 years I have done the same, until this year I realized no one every comes over when my house is clean. Right now it is a total mess, and I had 6 quests this weekend. So PCH Prize Patrol I’m sorry for the mess but I do want to see you the 31st.
P.S. My kids say I’m a clean freak so it will start getting cleaned on the 1st.

A place where I first started playing at the same place since I was 10 years old. it was a honor to say BINGO. now the drum rolls……8/31

Sincerely,

BRITTANY MARSHALL said...

I have been praying for a long time to win this! Having a disabled child and not being able to work hurts alot. But I do whatever it takes to take care of my child because he truly is a miracle from God! When my baby was born 24 weeks premature and given a 30% chance of living I thought wow is this really happening, but in the for front of my mind I knew that God was going to keep him here on earth with me because I believed in Miracles, and I believed that God would never put more on me then I could bare. And here he is, he may have some disablities but I thank God everyday for him! The same way I believed God to keep my son here is the same way I’m believing God for this Miracle to win this SweepStakes, I’m nobody to claim this as my own, but then again GOD is still able and I’m believing him for this until the very End! Good Luck to everyone who has entered, I pray GOD blesses you in a way unimaginable!!!

I just received a phone call from American Bank that I won $250,000 from Readers Digest and PCH sweepstakes. Call 1-800-538-9001 – called the number, they keep hanging up on me when I ask for a Supervisor. I’m to send them $2,500 before I can collect my money. Please notify everyone that this scam is going on. They had to get my phone number and information from PCH

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Louise,

    That definitely sounds like a scam! At Publishers Clearing House the winning is always free and we would never require any money, tax, fee or payment be made to collect a prize. Winners of $500.00 or more from the real Publishers Clearing House are notified by registered mail and winners of $10,000 or more would be notified in person by our famous Prize Patrol with no advance notice.

    Scam artists will use company names that are identical or very similar to well-known, legitimate sweepstakes operators to try to fool you. They do this because well-known, legitimate companies, such as Publishers Clearing House, have a lot of consumers that use their services, and chances are good that they will come across someone who has used the companies’ services previously.

    Publishers Clearing House cares about consumers and has long been committed to their education and protection, especially when it comes to sweepstakes promotions. We are a proud member of the Federal Trade Commission’s Partnership for Consumer Education. We’ve also been instrumental in helping state and federal authorities identify and prosecute sweepstakes scam artists, due in part to information consumers like you have provided.

    At Publishers Clearing House, we treat the fraudulent use of our name seriously. We keep track of these incidents and work closely with the law enforcement and consumer protection community to share this information. We recommend that you also report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org

    We have reported the information you have provided and thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. For future reference, anyone who believes they have been the victim of a fraudulent contact using the name of Publishers Clearing House, may contact us immediately at our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190 and anyone who believes they have received a suspicious email using our name and logo, may forward it to our fraud reporting mailbox, abuse@pch.com. We also encourage consumers to visit the Consumer Affairs section on our website at info.pch.com, where there is more valuable information on how to protect oneself and avoid falling victim to sweepstakes scams.

    Stay safe!
    Jodi @ PCH
