Great news! The PCH Prize Patrol is officially “on standby” for the April 30th SuperPrize Event! But before they hit the road to deliver the Big Check in 5 days, there are many “to-do’s” that need to be completed by Dave, Todd and Danielle. Believe me, I know!
As a previous Prize Patrol Deputy, I still remember my first prize award like it was yesterday! While the Prize Patrol Elite team was busy getting ready for a SuperPrize a few years ago, a fellow deputy and I were dispatched to deliver an award of $25,000 to Mrs. Elaine Macdonald in Arizona. But before we could leave Publishers Clearing House Headquarters, we needed to follow our PCH Prize Patrol checklist. No matter how big the prize is or where we’re going, the checklist must be followed to make sure the Big Check is delivered to a completely surprised winner!
So here’s what we have to do:
1) Supply check! We need to make sure we have all our usual tools of the trade. PCH Prize Patrol van sign? Big Check? Prize Patrol jackets? All the essential paperwork? It needs to ALL travel with us! That’s a lot of luggage!
1) List of local florists, hotels and airports. We don’t always know where we’re going to go until the last second, so a well-researched list certainly helps. That way we can easily plot our course from the airport, to the florist and then to the lucky winner’s house. Oh, and when in doubt, use the GPS!
2) And last but not least, we need the name and address of the winner! I wonder who it will be for the April 30th SuperPrize Event. If you entered on time, it could be you!
Oh no! I forgot the balloons, champagne, and alerting the media!
Wow, there is so much that goes into making people’s lives better with huge cash awards. But one thing the PCH Prize Patrol Elite team never forgets to bring is their winning smiles and positive attitudes. You see, we here at Publishers Clearing House love giving away millions of dollars, but especially to those whose warmth and hearts match our own!
All of us here at PCH Headquarters are so excited about the upcoming April 30th SuperPrize event…especially the PCH Prize Patrol! Comment below and let us know if YOU’RE excited, too!
