PCH Give Back Results! Who Won The $50,000.00 Big Check?

At Publishers Clearing House, making dreams come true for winners across the nation is what we do. We’ve awarded hundreds and thousands of dollars to unsuspecting individuals since 1967, and we’re not stopping anytime soon!

But you know what else we love to do? Make dreams come true for charities, too! And last Wednesday, I was one of the lucky Prize Patrol deputies who got to award a charity from this year’s PCH Give Back event with a Big Check! And I wasn’t the only one…You see, Prize Patrol deputies went to award Big Checks to ALL three charities involved in this year’s Give Back — because everyone’s a winner in The Give Back!

So have you heard which charity walked away with the Big Check for $50,000.00? Read on to find out all the details!

In first place, receiving over 75,000 of your votes (WOW!), was…
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Prize Patrol deputies Christine and Patricia couldn’t have been more excited to deliver the $50,000.00 Big Check to St. Jude Headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee. Said Christine: “The fact that over half of the PCH fans voted for the children’s research and treatment hospital during the Give Back event is amazing. Everyone at St. Jude was so excited — cheering and clapping and ecstatic that PCH fans support their cause.” Want to see the exciting winning moment for yourself? Watch below!

Christine and Patricia LOVED the culture of St. Jude. Here’s Christine with a statue of St. Jude’s founder, Danny Thomas. “It’s good luck to rub his nose. I had to do it!”

Next up…in second place, receiving over 35,000 of your votes, was…
The American Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals® (ASPCA).

For this delivery, Prize Patrol deputies Denise and Maureen didn’t have to go far — they surprised The ASPCA® with a $35,000.00 Big Check in Manhattan, New York. Denise and Maureen felt extra special making this delivery because The ASPCA said the money couldn’t have come at a better time. Watch the video below to find out why!

We’re all so happy this money will help homeless animals who were displaced during Hurricane Sandy!

And finally, last but not least…in third place, receiving over 34,000 of your votes, was…
Susan G. Komen For The Cure®!

My Prize Patrol partner Bob and I were thrilled to make the trip to Dallas, Texas to surprise Susan G. Komen with a $25,000.00 Big Check! And we only got more excited as we walked into a cheering room of Susan G. Komen employees (sporting their trademark pink!) who were even more excited to receive the Big Check! Check out the video below!

Susan G. Komen will be putting the money to good work to help save lives and cure breast cancer! We’re so glad we could help such a good cause!

So blog readers, there you have it! What did YOU think of all the PCH Give Back deliveries? Did YOUR favorite charity win? Comment below and let us know!

From all of us at PCH…CONGRATULATIONS to the charities! And THANK YOU to the fans for voting!!!!

I think that it’s great that all the charities became winners in their own right. But got a question… Why is it lucky to rub Danny Thomas’ nose?

I am very glad that the charities were able to win no matter the amount, so they can continue to help those in medical need. I pray for the children who never get to grow old, smile for the ones who are always sick and suffering, and laugh wuth the ones who appreciate life more than us, because they know the true meaning of happiness and how to bring smiles to all of our faces. Love the fact that breast cancer has also been made more aware of and animals are receiving the deserved respect they should have been getting for a very long time. Way to go PCH for making America a better place day by day. Praying for change, and hoping with the prayers, a change will come my way so I too can give back.

I AM VERY PLEASED TO READ THAT ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL , THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS {ASPCA} AND SUSAN KOMEN FOR THE CURE WERE SURPRISED WITH CHARITABLE DONATIONS FROM PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE.

HEAVENLY FATHER YOU KNOW OUR HEARTS OUR NEEDS AND OUR DESIRES. YOU KNOW WHAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH AND HOW TO GET US THROUGH. WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD TOUCH OUR LIVES AND MEET OUR NEEDS. BY FAITH, WE RECEIVE THE ANSWER TO OUR PRAYERS AND WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE. IN JESUS’ NAME WE PRAY , AMEN.

THANK YOU PCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ MY COMMENT. SO MANY SOULS ARE LOST AND REGRETS ARE HIGH. SOME WANT MORE AND CAN’T WAIT IN LINE, BUT I WILL PRAY FOR THOSE WHO SKIP THE LINE AND CAN’T SEEM TO STOP AND BE KIND ON PCH’S BLOG BECAUSE HE OR SHE DIDN’T WIN. GOD IS GOOD!!!

THANK YOU PCH FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR THE CONSUMER LIKE ME AND YOUR CUSTOMERS LIKE ME , WHEN I HAVE TO CALL WITH A QUESTION AND ALWAYS GETS SOLVED.

My first charity would be my son and his wife and kids to get them a decent house and replace their 14 yr old car and 12 yr old car which keep breaking down. Then my daughter and her family could use a little help and then a few of my friends and more relatives that I know could use some help.

I am growing on you, you do have my hope, my faith and my belief as well. Come see me, save me, I promise you You will have more people, more fans will spread good words and able to understand what is like to give GOD’s LOVE AND AMAZINGLY HOW THE WORLD CAN CHANGE IN A POSITIVE OUTLOOK. JUST TO SEE SOMEBODY SMILING MAKES OUR DAY. I CAN TOTALLY INTERPRETED WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO FOR OUR SOCIETY. I WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU, IF YOU DECIDE TO PICK ME.. I WILL COMMIT MYSELF BY PASSING ON GOD’s LOVE. I HAVE MY STRUGGLES, MY BATTLES THAT I FOUGHT FOR ALONG TIME. I THANK GOD EVERYDAY THAT I’M ALIVE. I’M A SURVIVOR. I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE. IT WILL OPEN MANY PEOPLE’s EYES. WE ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE WHAT WE HAVE. I ALWAYS LOOK AT IT, IT CAN BE WORSE. TAKE IT AS IT IS, LEARN FROM IT, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, EDUCATE YOURSELF, GAIN WISDOM.. UNDERSTAND THIS WORLD, BE KIND TO OTHERS, KEEP PASSING ON GODS LOVE.
