On June 30th I had the pleasure of surprising Missourians Tim Roush and family with a Big Check for $10,000. Tim is a high school history teacher; his wife Donna is also an educator, and it sure makes us happy to honor public servants who do so much for our nation’s youth.
Freshly encouraged Tim will keep on entering. As I told him, “You’ve won once! You can win again – an even Bigger Check!”
And that brings me to the “bigger” surprise visit we made last Wednesday — to David Rodriguez in Florida.
Originally from New York City, David is retired and a father of two grown sons. He enters the PCH Sweepstakes virtually every day and has earned Red Diamond Status and hundreds of millions of PCH Tokens. He particularly enjoys PCH Search & Win and PCH Lotto.
You’d think that with all those entries David would be an optimistic guy. Well … he believed that the PCH Sweepstakes was real but never expected us to knock on his door. So he was totally shocked, even misty-eyed, when the Prize Patrol arrived with roses, champagne and a Big Check for $54,510! (Sorry, no balloons. They were grabbed by a wind gust and flew off toward Georgia.) David’s prize gave him the option of a brand new Ford Edge ST or its cash value. While a set of automotive wheels is high on his list — so he doesn’t have to rely on his old two-wheeler bike — he decided to take the cash and put it right in the bank.
So take heart all you PCH fans! As our old ad jingle used to sing, “Miracles can happen, can happen for you: Publishers Clearing House, The House Where Dreams Come True.”
