Prize Patrol Gives Back to The ASCPA® with $35,000!

ASPCA_Delivery

Yesterday you heard all about our first Give Back delivery of $25,000 to the USO. And today, I’m here to tell you all about our 2nd Give Back donation, which was a $35,000 Big Check to the ASCPA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®).

This was my FIRST Prize Patrol experience, and I couldn’t have been more excited for it. The fact that I was getting to hand-deliver such a huge donation to a charity like the ASPCA, one of the very BEST animal welfare organizations, made it even more special.

Travelling through NYC (where, if you haven’t heard, the weather has been QUITE snowy lately), proved a bit challenging. We had to wrap that Big Check up good to make sure it stayed in PERFECT shape. But it was nothing that a plastic bag, some twine and a neat carry handle couldn’t take care of. The ASPCA does SO much great work to protect our furry friends that we had to do everything we could to protect their Big Check :)

ASPCA_Big_Check

 The ASPCA® was the first humane organization in the western hemisphere, and is a national leader in the areas of anti-cruelty, community outreach and animal health services. They work across the nation to rescue these animals in need, including helping to rescue and protect victims of animal cruelty, working to help at-risk animals – like those in shelters across the country – and providing resources for pet parents.

We at Publishers Clearing House thank the ASPCA® for their exceptional work, and for being part of the 2013 Give Back. And of course, we thank you, the fans, for helping us make a difference with this campaign.

THATS ONE REASON I KEEP UP WITH THE PCH STAFF. THEY NOT ONLY GIVE US OUR DREAMS BUT GIVE TO CAUSES THAT NEED IT TO. THESE ANIMALS DON’T ASK TO BE HURT. I LOVE ALL KINDS OF ANIMALS WHEN I HEAR THEY DID SOMETHING TO A ANJMAL IT REALLY MAKES ME MAD. BUT THOSE ARE THE FEW THAT LIKE TO HURT PEOPLE AND ANIMALS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR WARM HEARTS YOU ALL HAVE. GOD HAS A SPECIAL PLACE FOR ALL OF YOU. THANKS KAREN BORQUEZ

Hi Cathy J., Good Early Morning! I just want to let you know that I can’t play PCH Blackjack anymore at all just because I failed every day getting a perfect 21 in order to WIN a $25,000.00 Prize Patrol prize money. Instead, Dave Sayer and his Prize Patrol crew are going to find out if I’m a Prize Patrol winner or not tomorrow when they will be on the road to my own hometown of Fairfax, Virginia for the first time ever to surprise me and award me with something else which is also a mystery prize. (((I’M SO VERY EXCITED))) (((SMILE)))

Cat J., I saw your smile with that check and it immediately reminded me of the first picture I have of my spouse [deceased] holding a cat of hers and the smile it brought her. I almost cried. I’m so glad you got to deliver that check.

Good for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and thanks to PCH. I know about the good things this hospital does for Children whose parents do not have the resources enough to pay for those costly treatments. they save children’s lives, because they really care. If it wasn’t for the Donations that come from people with Great Hearts, children would not have the chance to survive. All the non-profitable Charities like this are include in my Bucket List, should I win a lump sum of CA$H from PCH
