$1 Million SuperPrize Winner Karen Anderson’s Life Is Forever Changed

Not even bad weather could stop the Prize Patrol from surprising this $1 Million SuperPrize winner!

On February 27th Arkansas was hit with terrible weather: news of an earthquake, tornado, thunder and lightning.  What terrible luck…that is until February 28th when the PCH Prize Patrol arrived in Bella Vista to surprise the newest SuperPrize winner with $1 Million!  As if our presence was known, the skies cleared right when it was time to suit up and surprise Karen Anderson with her million dollar prize from Publishers Clearing House!

With a ring of the doorbell and knock at the door, local media and the Prize Patrol were smiling and ready for that door to swing open and hear a scream…but no such luck, there was no answer!  The Prize Patrol is used to this and never gives up hope.  Luckily Karen is extremely friendly and was close with her neighbors who were able to tell us she would be arriving home within the next few hours and told us what kind of car she drove so we knew when she arrived.  We parked the Prize Patrol van down the road and waited…and waited…and then did some more waiting.  BUT, it was fun!  Bella Visa residents were certainly excited to see the Prize Patrol van sitting on the side of the road.  So many cars pulled up next to us asking if we were coming to their house.  Though disappointed that their house wasn’t where we were going, they were truly excited that a Bella Vista resident was the newest Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize winner.

After endless false alarms, the Prize Patrol finally saw Karen’s car turn onto the block…now its show time!  Knock, knock, knock.  The door swung open and Karen clung on to it for support exclaiming “oh heavenly days! You have no idea how this is going to help!”  After a few hugs from Dave Sayer and myself, Karen told us how she sadly lost her job in October.  “I lost my job in October and I was bringing home not a whole lot, but a thousand a month.”  Karen was overwhelmed with joy that this money can now help pay for her husband’s medical expenses.  Karen said the first thing she was going to do was hire a cleaning service to come to the house.  Well, I spoke on the phone with Karen a day after her winning moment and she told me a local cleaning service called her immediately saying they wanted to do the job!  The next thing she wants, “that $200 chihauha in the newspaper!”

Karen Anderson and her husband David truly touched my heart.  They were kind enough to show us around their home, telling stories of how David Anderson built the back deck and the creative decorations Karen created out of basically nothing when she was trying her best to stretch a dollar.  She did such a fantastic job I want her to come decorate my house next!

After signing some paperwork Karen called her sister “the PCH skeptic” to share the exciting news.  Not surprisingly, her sister still wasn’t a believer, so Dave Sayer got on the phone to prove it!  I was standing across the room from Dave and all I heard were screams coming from the phone…I guess she’s now a PCH Sweepstakes believer!  If you’re a PCH Sweepstakes believer you could become our next SuperPrize winner and find the Prize Patrol at your door.  Keep entering at and never stop believing.  The Prize Patrol wishes you all the best of luck!

See this touching winning moment on and the local media coverage  ENJOY!
