It was a beautiful late spring day in a Michigan suburb when the Prize Patrol arrived to turn Loriane’s life upside down by surprising her with news that she was a PCH Winner!
Here’s her winning moment!
“Loriane was so overcome with emotion that she had to sit down, while her children and grandchildren jumped for joy!” explained Prize Patroller Howie.
“The house was on a busy intersection and I couldn’t believe how many people were giving congratulatory exclamations and yelling how they ‘never thought it was real‘ from their cars out front car windows!”
I spoke with Loriane, and she said the same thing. She was overwhelmed at how many in her community had come out of their cars and homes when they saw that the Prize Patrol was at her doorstep. During times like these, it’s moments like PCH winner Loriane’s prize award that can bring people together!
Loriane described herself to me as a true Michigander, a professional who worked all her life. Now retired, she is close with her family, with whom she spends much of her time.
Perhaps most intriguing about her win, Loriane explains that she had only been entering PCH for about a year and half! Of course, she had known about Publishers Clearing House for a long time and she had always believed it was real. But her relatively short entry streak shows that beginners can win big from PCH too!
Loriane has big plans to finally get some traveling done, but only when the time is right. She’s not rushing to buy any plane tickets at the moment.
