#WinnerWednesday: Tina B. Of Utah Wins $25,000 After Entering For 20 Years

It took Howie Guja of PCH Prize Patrol a while to track down Tina Bates of Kaysville, Utah and present her and her husband with a check for $25,000, but we don’t rest until our legit PCH winners are found. Mrs. Bates said she has been entering the sweepstakes for 20 years and hoped one day PCH Prize Patrol would show up and present her with balloons, flowers and, of course, a big check. “My husband has teased me for years about always entering this,” she said, “but when Friday happened, I said to him, ‘I told you!’” Tina said she has been a stay-at-home mom and always wanted to contribute financially to the family. “This was a windfall I did not expect,” she said. “I’m very grateful. For anyone out there who wonders if the PCH contest is real or not, believe me, it is real. I have the check here in my hand to prove it!”

  1. Congratulations! How wonderful that would be!! After 34 years, I retired from Education. I spent those years serving as a Reading Specialist, Elementary Teacher, Elementary Principal, and finished my career as Director of Elementary Education.
    All of those years were years I had spent in the same district when I was in grade 1- 12.
