William Hoerman Winner Wednesday

#WinnerWednesday: This PCH Winner Won A Big Check For $1,000,000!

When the Prize Patrol arrived at the home of William Hoerman in North Fort Myers, Florida, William’s brother David answered the door and said, “He’s getting his pants on.” When William finally came to the door to accept his big check for one million dollars, he was grateful and surprised. “Oh my God. Thank you! I’ve been trying so hard,” he said. In fact, not only did William enter the sweepstakes the day that he won, he said that he spends about three or four hours a day entering. When asked if he had any plans for his winnings, William said, “A new car and a new computer… and plenty to invest.” His advice for others? “Keep entering and it comes true,” he said. “It seems like a dream.”

    1. In order to have a chance to win, either by phone, tablet or computer every time you get an entry in your in box you have to do the steps then you press submit the entry then gets a number only you can win by.
      Doing a long letter saying what you want done you won’t win that way
      You have to do the work you have to return the entries yourself…..

  6. William you deserve every dollar of this 1 million you have worked hard hopefully it’s my turn soon I want to retire from Publishers clearing house I’ve been hard Entering since 1968. I am 72 years old hopefully I’ll win before I go to my grave.
