PCH Throws a Celebration for Mega Prize Winner!

There’s a party goin’ on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times, and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you…

You know that Publishers Clearing House loves to “celebrate good times, come on!” That Kool and the Gang song has become our unofficial anthem – it has been featured in our commercials, used during our recent Prize Patrol meet and greet at Mall of America®, and even played to welcome our Mega Prize winner to PCH headquarters. Yes, that’s right, PCH threw a little celebration for a guest of honor: LeRoy Faulks Sr., Mega Prize winner of $1,000,000.00 plus $5000.00 A Week For Life!

LeRoy and his family were invited to spend a day at PCH headquarters in mid-January. This was the first winner visit since PCH invited Doris Gray, a past $5000.00 A Week For Life winner, to visit HQ a few years ago. The Faulks family was greeted by their old friends, the Prize Patrol, as well as PCH executives like CEO Andy Goldberg and Executive Vice President Deborah Holland. They were then led to the PCH cafeteria which was full of excited PCH employees festively throwing around balloons. And, of course, “Celebration” played as the Faulks family walked in to applause, a standing ovation! LeRoy said he felt like a celebrity (well, he kind of is to us!).

PCH employees and the guests of honor watched LeRoy’s winning moment as it was projected onto a big screen. The audience laughed, cheered, and “aww”-ed at all the right moments! LeRoy’s family provided colorful commentary as they watched their relative win a life-changing prize.

LeRoy and his wife, Cecilia, both said a few words, thanking the company and expressing their deep gratitude. Cecilia even shed a few tears, and I can tell you that my eyes were definitely not dry as the Faulks spoke. Dave Sayer even presented LeRoy and Cecilia with one of the special checks that will change their lives forever.

After this little celebration, the Faulks family was whisked away for a PCH tour, including a tour of a place that not many people have seen – the PCH photo studio! If you remember, when LeRoy was surprised by the Prize Patrol on November 30th, he exclaimed that he couldn’t wait to buy a new camera with his winnings! Well, this tour of the photo studio was the perfect fit for LeRoy. The photographers gave him detailed explanations about how to use the photo equipment. Apparently, he didn’t want to leave!

After the tour, the Faulks and some PCH employees sat down for a delicious lunch where they relived the winning moment and got to know each other even better.

I am so Happy for Leroy and his wife. They deserve it. God has blessed him tremendously. And I just loved hearing him say and knowing it was God he has trusted in. Thank you God! These are the words that suck in my mind and always will. Congratulations Leroy and to your Wife and family too! God Bless and stay with you always until the end!

I have been following PCH winning PCHTV live presentation events inclusing the one at Mall of America. The picture up above as he stares at that check is PRICELESS! He still seems like he is in unbelief even as he is standing there holding a big check! WOW I hope one day it will be my turn. Like Leroy, I love photography. It would be so nice to be able to afford a professional digital camera…ahhh,,ohhh the things i could do with that. I am still hoping to see your commercial with people that visited THE MALL OF AMERICA. I watched as they were interviewed live from my desk at home and they were shaking it up when asked wheat THEIR VICTORY DANCE WOULD LOOK LIKE. I hope when I come to visit the PCH HEADQUARTERS we will all be dancing…now who would I fly out there with me…YIKES Im scared of flying maybe the PCH super shuttle VAN could pick us all up LIMO CARAVAN to PCH HEADQUARTERS. PRIME RIB! Celebration! I would like to see that happen for sure! LOL ANYHOOT…Its so nice to KNOW that people are made into winners by playing PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE> Albyena Newberry

30 years of working, raising my son as a single parent and surviving breast cancer, discovered in 2003 – I think I could use a lucky break.

Do not own a house – have no savings – and need PCH’s help. Been a loyal fan since the 1980′s.

What do ya say PCH?
