#WinnerWednesday: PCH Newbie Tangie P. Of Dunnellon, Florida Doubles Over After Winning $100,000

When Dave Sayer of Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol surprised Tangie Pate and her husband, Mike Davis, on their property in Dunnellon, Florida, Tangie doubled over and started laughing with excitement as soon as she saw the balloons and back of the Big Check worth $100,000. Tangie posed playfully with the Big Check. “Don’t I look lovely?” she asked. “This is amazing… I literally just got laid off from my job two weeks ago.” Tangie said that, although just a beginner, she was diligently playing games until one closed and the screen notification read that there was a winner in Florida. “Oh, just let it be me,” she said. “I know they’re going to drive down my driveway!”

The timing of Tangie’s win couldn’t have been better because her brother and sister-in-law are renewing their vows in Jamaica. “We had to cancel because I just lost my job and we didn’t want to spend the money,” said Tangie. “But now we’re going to Jamaica!”

What would Tangie say to people who think people don’t really win at Publishers Clearing House? “I was kind of, sort of one of those people, but I always had hope,” she said. “I believe whatever is meant for me will come to me. Someone has to win. Why not me?”

  1. Hi, it’s actually December 1st 2022 and I just got up and did some entering and had something to eat. #InitToWinIt. Especially for the $2.5 Million sweepstakes and from other PCH Properties. And I have been entering for a very long time. I can recall sitting & watching TV more than 30 years ago and seeing Mr. Dave Sayer along with Mr. Todd Sloane. #PrizePatrol give away “LUCKY” #BigCheck and I hope that I will meet Mr. Dave Sayer & Mr. Todd Sloane and Mr. Howie Gujia and the wonderful Danielle Lam. “VIPELITE” 5-Star #SuperPrize winner that would be spectacular & I can get out of this cold weather & take a vacation to a warmer place. Possibly to the American Southwest or maybe California West Coast or Southern Florida that would be super. I do day dream a lot because I have not been on a good vacation since 1977 in that year. I took 2 trips, one to Chicago and that other on a family road trip to Florida, down to the Keys. Fun trip I had to do a classroom report about my favorite place, you know the Fort. Well, I hope that my miracle comes true tonight or soon. “LUCKY” #BigCheck #SuperPrize #PCHPrizePatrol #PCH.

  2. Good evening PCH. I’m really starting to believe there’s a little to this, no I did not. I understand there’s 1 million people playing games trying to win but I really can’t do much games because of my phone. I can’t afford a new one and now it’s running real slow so I get irritated when I’m trying to play games. So I will put my faith in just doing my entries everyday and hopefully I’ll get randomly picked from my entries. You guys have a very blessed evening and I will continue to start over tomorrow, but on my interest.
