Meet Robert Porfidio, Lucky $10,000 PCH Winner!


The Prize Patrol is used to always having a bag packed to go all over the country to surprise a lucky winner with that “big check” as seen on TV. So when we heard we had a $10,000.00 winner we were prepared to get on the road … until we noticed the location was less than an hour from PCH headquarters!  I ran down the hallway to Maryanne Carter’s office and couldn’t believe the winner was from Copiague, NY! Wow!!! So without hesitation, Howie and I began planning the surprise “winning moment” hoping we would find Robert home. Luck was on OUR side that day, as you’ll soon hear.

When Howie and I knocked on Robert’s door that beautiful fall NY morning, we  had our usual anxious moment wondering if the winner would open the door. After a few knocks we thought we were in trouble … until, just in the knick of time, a neighbor saw the camera crew, balloons and big check and realized her neighbor was about to get the surprise of a lifetime! She ran to the side door and found Robert and told him to answer the front door immediately.

Moments later, Robert opened the front door in complete shock. When he saw the “big check” he immediately said “Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it! I’ve been playing all along!” That persistence sure did pay off, in the form of a $10,000 “big check” from Publishers Clearing House!

Watch his touching winning moment now:


As luck would have it, Robert’s family was away and he decided to be the one to stay back to take care of the dogs. If he didn’t make that decision we wouldn’t have found Robert that day … AND if he didn’t make the decision to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, he never would have won at all!


What decision are YOU going to make? Enter the PCH sweepstakes and you could be making an exciting decision should YOU be our big SuperPrize winner next month. Would you choose $10,000 A Week For Life OR $10 Million All At Once? Comment below and let us know!
