Let’s look back on ALL 8 past PCH “Forever” Prize Winners!

“Forever” Prize Winner #1 had entered for years.

In 2012, our Prize Patrol astonished “Forever” Prize Winner #1 — John Wyllie of White City, OR — with the news that he’d won $5,000.00 A Week “Forever” — $5,000.00 A Week paid for the rest of his life, with those weekly checks continuing AFTER that, for the life of someone dear.

John wept with joy, confiding that he and his Dad had entered the PCH Sweepstakes faithfully for years.

Our “Forever” Prize Winner #2 was literally speechless.

Although his family rejoiced, young Michael Miller of Moro, IL was absolutely quiet after the PCH Prize Patrol told him that he’d just become PCH’s “Forever” Prize Winner #2. But after the shock wore off, he declared, “I’m set for life!”

“Forever” Prize Winner #3 had a hunch she might win.

Just the night before she won, Tamar Howard sat with her daughters in their Silas, AL home, discussing how she’d react if the PCH Prize Patrol came knocking. Tamar found out the next day, when she cried and jumped up and down upon learning that her winning dreams really HAD come true.

In fact, all 8 of our PCH “Forever” Prize Winners had unique stories and reactions.

In 2016, Ryan Hart, PCH “Forever” Prize Winner #4, had lost his job at a turkey hatchery in Osceola, OH. When the Prize Patrol turned up with his “Big Check,” Ryan was stunned and speechless … then went on to say that he wanted to help his Dad with his prize money.

A year later, in 2017, Chicago, IL resident Ora Gayton was overjoyed to become PCH “Forever” Prize Winner #5! At 93, with children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, charming Ora proved that you’re never too old to make your dreams come true.

Then, in 2018, our Prize Patrol drove down to Wilkes-Barre, PA to tell Joann Snyder that she had become PCH “Forever” Prize Winner #6. Understandably, Joann was shocked when she got the news … but managed to say that now, she and her husband could finally take a long-planned trip: “on Route 66 — all the way through!”

“Forever” Prize Winner #7 — our second in 2018 alone — was Doug Butcher of Vero Beach, FL. Doug had to lean against his truck to keep from fainting when he got the good news. After he calmed down, Doug encouraged everyone to keep entering and to “Be persistent! And never let go of your dreams!”

Our most recent “Forever” Prize winner — #8! — was lovely Crystal Crawford of Queens, NY (where I hail from!). She wasn’t home when the Prize Patrol called — so they surprised her at her job a half mile away. Crystal said of her $5,000.00 A Week “Forever” Prize: “I know if my bank account could talk, it is going to say ‘Wow, what happened?’”

How will we remember next month’s “Forever” Prize Winner #9?

Will our newest winner jump up and down like Tamar Howard or stand stock-still like Michael Miller? Will he or she live in the Northwest like John Wyllie … on the East Coast like Crystal Crawford … or way down South, like Doug Butcher? Will our winner be very young like Ryan Hart or “93 years young” like Ora Gayton?

In a few short weeks, on February 28, Publishers Clearing House guarantees to award $5,000.00 A Week “Forever” to one lucky person. If you want to become “#9” in the PCH “Forever” Prize Winners Club, your best bet is to keep entering any day until the Feb. 25 deadline … any way you can.

We’re waiting to hear from you ….

I would like to invest it and do wonderful things like making sure we Americans have a planned out communication with each other and get as much people who are Left in streets with no where to go and nothing to eat for all weather they have made bad decisions. In there walk of life and continue to do so are just any one who needs a little help will life. I got more than enough to get home less people into a home and start employment for people who need a job it’s enough money to make a difference, and dreams come true prayers ask and the past forgiven, bless people with clothes brand new no second hand where there’s not much to choose from. People who need it so there’s no reason for people in America to be with out.
