Sleepy North Carolina Household Wakes Up To $1 Million SuperPrize

Read the story of how Glenda Dancy won the PCH $1 Million SuperPrize on April 30th, 2013!PCH $1 Million SuperPrize Winner Glenda Dancy and Prize Patrol

April 30 started as a pretty ordinary day for the Dancy family in Statesville, NC.  Glenda was up and about helping her husband Archie get ready for a medical appointment.  Their adult son Jason was asleep upstairs having returned at 6 AM from his night shift job.  Little did any of them imagine that, at 10 AM, a group of unexpected guests would knock on the door and turn this unremarkable morning into an experience they would never forget.

But that’s just what happened:  The Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol, the team that some call America’s most wanted house guests, drove up in their famous van, jumped out, marched up the walk with roses and balloons and shocked the daylights out of Glenda Dancy — with a Big Check — worth $1 Million!

“Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?” Glenda asked, clearly wishing she had been prepared for the “winning moment” being video-taped by our Prize Patrol cameraman and by TV reporters from neighboring Charlotte and Winston Salem, N.C.  WBTV News and WXII12  both covered the exciting winning moment.

“We never tell anyone we’re coming,” I told Glenda.  And that’s the truth: The “winning moments” that have been the iconic core of our TV ads for 25 years (!!!) are totally spontaneous, unstaged, and unrehearsed – like a surprise party on the doorstep.  They are as real as the real people who really win real money from Publishers Clearing House, the grand-daddy of sweepstakes.

Glenda quickly woke up Jason who came groggily to the door wondering what was so important to interrupt his needed sleep.  When he saw the reason – in the form of a Big Check with his mother’s name on it – he almost fainted.  “OMG” he gasped, weak in the knees, then quickly awakened to give his mom a congratulatory hug.  Archie, now fully dressed, arrived in the doorway next and shook his head in disbelief – or should I say new belief.

Retirees Glenda and Archie have raised a large family of children and grandchildren.  Neighbors who gathered round said no couple was more deserving.  So we hope they will do what Glenda says is probably high on their list: take a nice trip.

Congratulations Glenda!

    Joe,You are right when you point out the many dimensions and aspcets of diversity. This complexity does make it difficult if not impossible to answer Jason’s question with a number, formula, or other concrete answer.As I read the conversation, I started to focus on this: We all have differences that get glossed over we are actually more diverse in our teams than we may appear in the mirror. Thus the diversity question isn’t just about how to build a team with the right mix of commonalities and differences. It is also building a container that allows us to reveal the differences that are there even when it may appear that we are more the same than different. Relationships, trust, low reactivity At this level, it is about differentiation of individuals as much as it is about the measurable and immeasurable characteristics of the group.

    I always reelpid, when asked if I knew what I was carrying, A hamster. And we are looking forward to it! We didn’t find out with our 1st, a son, but we did find out with the other 3, (ALL girls) and yes, with #1, I wanted a boy, #2 I wanted a girl, #3 was a gimme’ since we had one of each already and #4 I REALLY wanted a boy to even things out, but we got a girl and we were okay, a teeny bit disappointed, but really okay with it. Now I’ll sell all 4 for mere pennies on the dollar! (JOKING we are getting to the teenage angst years which is very confusing with all these girls in the house.)

    What’s a tad surprising are some of the folks who publicly profess to help the less fortunate in the event of a PCH Sweepstakes win, yet, it’s ‘sour grapes’ after a winner is announced? Normally those who tend to refrain from promising to give to this, that
    and the other, are usually the ones who follow thru, after the fact? It’s random and everybody has a chance! Congratulations to this retired couple! Very happy for them!
