$5,000 a Week Forever Prize
An Alabama woman received the shock of a lifetime today when she was surprised by America’s most welcome drop-in guests.
Tamar Howard of Silas, Alabama, was paid a surprise visit Friday by the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol who named her the winner of the company’s “Forever Prize”. Ms. Howard will receive $5,000 a week for the rest of her life, then after that, someone she chooses will receive $5,000 a week for his or her life.
Ms. Howard, 36, was stunned at the Prize Patrol’s arrival — with a giant prize certificate and bouquets of roses and balloons. The unannounced, videotaped surprise notification of the winner is a Publishers Clearing House tradition.
Ms. Howard, a mother of three daughters and out of work, says the money would be used to send her daughters to college and buy a new home.
WGBC-TV news was on the scene capturing the event and their footage can be found at ftp://188.8.131.52/PCH/ (username: wmdn2424, password: newspots). Her winning moment is also featured on the Publishers Clearing House fan page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pch.
Ms. Howard is the 77th Publishers Clearing House winner of one million dollars or more, joining a roster of other SuperPrize winners including Rosemary Cella of New York, Karl Jonsson of Wisconsin, Brian Willis of South Carolina and Philip Daltas of Florida. This SuperPrize brings the total awarded in the company’s sweepstakes to well over $255 million – in major prizes alone.
“No matter how many winners we surprise or how much money we give away, it’s a thrill for us every single time,” said Dave Sayer – who heads the Prize Patrol and who has presented virtually every major Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes prize since 1981.
For those who didn’t have Ms. Howard’s luck this time around, there are always more opportunities to win. The company faithfully awards prizes worth millions of dollars annually. Consumers can enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes by responding to company mailings or by visiting the company’s website: www.pch.com.
Publishers Clearing House, a direct marketer of magazine subscriptions and merchandise, was founded in Port Washington, NY in 1953. Its name has become synonymous with the sweepstakes and prizes it has used since 1967 to draw attention to the “unbeatable” deals and values offered in its colorful mailings. Nearly half of the Publishers Clearing House profits are donated to charitable causes ranging from social services to the environment. For more information, visit www.pch.com.
