#WinnerWednesday: This Hawaii Man Was Surprised By $100,000

He wasn’t expecting the Big Check, but that’s what was there waiting for him. Here’s how he plans to spend the money… and what the big moment looked like.

Ralph Esparza, Jr. was in complete shock when he opened the door to the PCH Prize Patrol!

When Hawaii resident Ralph E. was the surprised recipient of roses, balloons, and a Big Check — for $100,000.00! — he simply could not believe it! But when the Prize Patrol told him that this “winning moment” was 100% real (just like he’d seen on TV) he replied “I’m in shock! SHOCK!” Even then, it took a while for the reality to sink in.

After years of entering the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, he was a winner! This surprise financial windfall was welcome news for this retiree who says he has LOTS of bills to pay. After that, he’d like to help his family — and keep entering! Congratulations, Ralph!
