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.

PCH $1 Million SuperPrize Winner Glenda Dancy and Son

 

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!

    Hi Sharon, at Publishers Clearing House our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased. All Giveaways are conducted by Giveaway Supervisors and overseen by independent auditors. We have no way of determining, in advance, who our winners may be or where they may come from. We’ve had winners from all walks of life.

Hi! And Congrats Glenda!!:) I keep on saying I can’t wish anyone luck TO win because I want to win, but I’d be the first to congratulate them when they do! And the reason is simple, I believe. I believe if I put in 1 or 100 entries, if I was meant to win, I would. Now I will say I put in every entry I can, but I enjoy it. Every entry I fill out I dream of what I would do if I won. I will take back what I said about posting that I won, when I do … I wouldn’t even read any of the comments. I’ve entered for to long and dreamed to much to listen to that. And I’ll keep entering and dreaming…

That’s how it is in NC. We’re laid back and easy going in the small towns. Not so much in the bigger cities, though. I was so surprised to hear that the Prize Patrol was in my home state. Congrats to the winner!
But you still missed my house by 45 miles…shucks!

Hey Dave,

How are you doing today, I hope your having a great day. You did a great job delivering that check to the Glenda Family. Its always great to see you put a smile on people’s face every time you have a chance to.

It always fantastic and exciting to see people win because honestly it not about the money but it about what we can do with the help better everyone’s live. It about how we all can become more whole and happy with people. I’ve recently learn that money isn’t everything but who we are as people is the most important thing of all. I truly appreciate the good things in life we all can make life more than it can be.

Hello Mr. Dave Sayer, Sir!
Every single time I watch one of the winning moment videos, I smile and I am happy for them… rich, poor, skinny, fat, short, tall, they all did the same thing! They “entered!” So to all the ‘bad sports’ out there, I just ask.. did you enter once or one thousand times? Stop whining and keep entering or give up and shut up. PCH shows the awesome videos and if I have felt a little deflated, I just get pumped up again.. Way to go PCH! and CONGRATULATIONS to Glenda Dancy for keeping her dream alive… It came true! I like this powerful quote > “If faith is powerless, it is not faith. You cannot have faith without results any more than you can have motion without movement. The thing we sometimes call faith is only trust, but although we trust in the Lord, it is faith which has action and power.” – Kathryn Kuhlman
So I am choosing …continue… by FAITH!

I am confused, I thought the jackpot was $1m a year for life. Why did she only get $1m and not the $1 million a year for life? Was this a 1st place prize, and no one won the jackpot?

Congratulations to Glenda and her lovely family! I prayed that God would send an angel to pull the winning # to a very deserving and humble family. I believe He did. I loved the humble and gracious video of her winning! So precious and I believe that God will give her the wisdom she so wisely said she would use in spending the miracle money! God’s blessings and may He continue to bless you with divine favor and goodness! Blessings!
